Airbus and IBM introduce AFFS

Airbus and IBM aim to improve Airbus’ fleet solution by providing airlines and operators with IT services for maintenance, engineering and flight operations. The new fleet service - ‘Airbus Smarter Fleet Solution’ (AFFS) - should enhance operational efficiencies, help airlines manage aircraft more effectively and improve customer service. AFFS will initially focus on integrating and further developing Airbus’ current portfolio of software products and provide tailored fleet data management using an open, modular and flexible platform. IBM will “provide technology and services that will provide Airbus and its customers a smart way to extract real-time data, identify patterns and act on insights to help improve efficiency and enhance the passengers’ travel experience,” says Timothy Wholey, global leader, aerospace & defense industry, IBM Global Business Services.
