Michael Hickey, chief operations officer for Ryanair, took a moment during MRO Europe to outline the digital initiatives the airline is taking on.
"This is an exciting time for us in terms of how we use digital data, and how we, more importantly, digitize a lot of our processes. So, from across the flight ops and the engineering, we've got an exciting plan. We've already integrated electronic flight bags (EFB) into our fleet, which gives us electronic navigation tracks. We've got a lot of things that we're rolling out, but for me, one of the key things is the move toward an electronic tech-log. We've got a goal of having this delivered in our fleet by the end of next year. We do recognize the number of issues we have to cross to get to that point. We say it's been a very worthwhile move that will drive a number of efficiencies into the airline," says Hickey.
