Luxair Data Migration by CrossConsense

CrossConsense Successfully Executes Data Migration Project for Luxair’s New B737MAX Aircraft Integration

CrossConsense proudly announces the completion of yet another successful data migration project. This endeavour involved the integration of the aircraft type B737MAX into Luxair’s Aircraft Operations Control (AOC) system, a critical step in enhancing operational efficiency and ensuring a seamless transition for the Luxair fleet.

Luxair, the national airline of Luxembourg, embarked on a strategic initiative to incorporate the B737MAX aircraft into their fleet. Given the significance of this endeavour and the expected usage of the B737MAX for the next 15-20 years, Luxair’s management recognized the need to establish a sound foundation in their AMOS system. The airline engaged the expertise of CrossConsense’s data migration specialists to accomplish this crucial task.

The primary aim of the project was to seamlessly integrate the new B737MAX aircraft type, hitherto not part of Luxair’s AOC, into the existing Luxair AMOS system. This integration also encompassed the meticulous migration of aircraft-related data for two B737MAX aircraft into Luxair’s AMOS.

“We are thrilled to have played a pivotal role in Luxair’s strategic initiative to integrate the B737MAX aircraft into their operations,” said Axel Christ, Managing Director of CrossConsense. “Our team of dedicated data migration specialists worked tirelessly to ensure a smooth transition, enabling Luxair to leverage the full potential of the new aircraft type within their AMOS environment.”

CrossConsense’s extensive experience in aviation technology solutions, coupled with their proficiency in data migration, proved instrumental in the success of this project. The seamless integration of the B737MAX aircraft into Luxair’s AOC system sets the stage for enhanced operational capabilities and streamlined maintenance processes.

Christoph Blaha, VP Technical Services:

“With CrossConsense’s expertise and tools, we could handle the 737MAX plane’s complex data migration process efficiently. This collaboration has helped us to reduce the time required to set up this new fleet in AMOS and phase-in two aircraft in only a few months. The collaboration with CrossConsense enabled us to take benefit of all AMOS functionality in record time.”

With this latest achievement, CrossConsense continues to solidify its reputation as a premier provider of aviation technology solutions. The company’s dedication to excellence and its unwavering commitment to delivering tangible results position them as a preferred partner for airlines seeking to navigate the complexities of technology integration and data migration.

CrossConsense, the Germany-based leading provider of aviation technology solutions, has successfully fulfilled its mandate by flynas, the Saudi air carrier and the leading low-cost airline in the Middle East, to migrate data from the legacy MRO system to AMOS.

Condor live with Aircraft Fleet View

Condor goes live with LBA approved Aircraft Fleet View

Condor Flugdienst GmbH went live with Aircraft Fleet View 2.0 – a Native App that gives the user an always up-to-date view on the airline’s fleet status. It indicates AOGs, delays and other important information. It provides the right level of detail to be useful but not crowded with information. A new feature is the CAMO Release to Service. This enables a guided workflow involving the commander and the CAMO for releasing the aircraft prior to each flight. Recently, the LBA (German Federal Aviation Authority) granted Condor approval to use the CAMO Release Tool.

At Condor, Aircraft Fleet View will be used by pilots as well as by the management. It is meant for everyone who wants to get a general overview over the status of the fleet. Users who do not have the time or the knowledge to dive deeply into the MRO backend system will be presented with the most important information regarding a single aircraft, a range of aircraft or the whole fleet.

Aircraft Fleet View sends push notifications, e.g. when CAMO in its browser based application gives the “Release to Service” or if an AOG happened.

Patrick Frey, Fleet Chief Boeing at Condor Flugdienst GmbH says:

The Aircraft Fleet View has been developed with focus on the needs of a dynamic airline operation. It enables Condor to remove old fashioned, static PDF Technical Status Reports from the briefing package and replace it with an interactive live view of the aircraft technical status.

Our pilots are able to access fleet wide data to familiarize themselves with the current technical status of their assigned aircraft. This enables better decision making, both safety and economy wise, even before arriving at the aircraft. The Aircraft Fleet View CAMO Release function enables a direct communication between Maintrol personnel and the flight crew. This ensures that all required maintenance documentation is available and checked prior releasing an aircraft for operation. Receiving post-flight information by the pilots, via the application, enables Condor to better coordinate maintenance services and prioritize maintenance service to aircraft with technical defects.

About Condor Flugdienst:

As Germany’s most popular leisure airline, Condor has been taking its guests to the world’s most beautiful holiday destinations for more than 66 years. Every year, more than nine million guests fly with Condor from the nine largest airports in Germany, from Zurich in Switzerland and Vienna in Austria to around 90 destinations in Europe, Africa and America. Condor operates a fleet of over 50 aircraft, which are maintained by the company’s own maintenance operation, Condor Technik GmbH, according to the highest safety standards at the Frankfurt and Dusseldorf locations. As the German launch customer, Condor will be flying 16 A330neo long-haul aircraft. Thanks to state-of-the-art technology and maximum efficiency, the latest-generation 2-liter aircraft is the European front-runner with 2.1 liters per passenger per 100 kilometers and maximum customer comfort. Moreover, Condor will receive 41 brand-new short- and medium-haul aircraft of the A32Xneo family from 2024.
