Finnair, IBM Agree Digital Tie-Up

Flag carrier the latest airline to link up with tech giant

Finnair and IBM have agreed to use iOS enterprise apps from IBM to support the airline's digital transformation.

The first applications from the collaboration will be deployed in Finnair Technical Operations in aircraft line maintenance in the beginning of 2017.

The first apps to be rolled out are Inspect & Turn, providing mechanics with digital task cards and documentation with analytics-driven recommendations, and Assign Tech, providing supervisors an overview of flight schedules, maintenance processes and mechanic availability.

"We see a wealth of opportunities for improving productivity as well as adding value to the work flow of our employees, by improving real-time visibility and transparency across the entire maintenance process,” said Jari Huhtinen, head of Finnair Technical Operations.

“Our mechanics team participated in the application creation work with Apple and IBM to ensure the best possible design, user experience and fit into our organizational processes.”
