KLM Royal Dutch Airlines has signed an agreement for AerData’s software services, Secure Technical Records for Electronic Assset Management (STREAM) and Engine Fleet Planning and Costing (EFPAC).
Under the terms of the contract with the Boeing subsidiary, KLM will be able to use EFPAC, an engine management solution, to maximize time on-wing by optimizing engine maintenance planning.
Meanwhile, AerData said its STREAM offering will enable KLM’s engine division to process all its historical paper records and implement electronic records filing procedures in all phases.
This, according to AerData, will enable KLM to address customer enquiries more swiftly and lower costs whilst complying with the latest industry standardizations in records and engine transitions.
“We see the aircraft agnostic software and service solutions as an added value to lower our cost,” said Paul Chun, VP of engine services at KLM.
“With this agreement, we have renewed access to expertise in the leasing market where nowadays digital records, diagnostics and maintenance plan optimizations are key to lowering costs and increasing efficiency, especially where aircraft transitions are at stake.”
