Aegean Airlines & Olympic Air go CROSSMOS®
Aegean Airlines together with its subsidiary Olympic Air signed contract with CrossConsense to implement the CROSSMOS® eTLB. After the final implementation CROSSMOS® will then be on board of about 61 aircraft operating under the flag of these two Greek airlines. By implementing CROSSMOS® AEGEAN Group is taking an important step moving towards paperless maintenance.
Mr. Vasilios Kardasis, Technical Director at AEGEAN said: “AEGEAN’s driving and achieved target for constant growth and development over the years has been accomplished by establishing advanced systems and technologies that indicate towards that same need in the future as well. CROSSMOS implementation is a decision for reducing manual data recording, provide almost real-time aircraft status at any time and substantially simplify maintenance handling for flight crews, maintenance staff and operations control. Higher data quality that eases control and monitoring processes of all aircraft fleets will be expected by aircraft data digitization and maintenance workflows optimization in order to continuously enhance efficiency, punctuality, reliability and safety of our commercial flight operations”.
