Scandinavian Airlines joins Airbus' Skywise open data platform

Scandinavian Airlines has signed a 5 year contract with Airbus becoming the latest European operator to go with Airbus’ Skywise Health Monitoring (SHM) digital solution.

Scandinavian Airlines will apply Airbus’ Skywise Health Monitoring solution across its entire A320, A330 and A350 family fleet of 78 aircraft.

“We are very pleased to see our long-time partner Scandinavian Airlines join the Skywise family.” said Charbel Youzkatli, Head of Airbus Commercial Services Europe.

“We firmly believe that with Skywise and SAS’ continual push for innovative solutions we will see them propelled to new levels of productivity and efficiency.

“I want to warmly thank SAS for their trust and confidence”.

Skywise Health Monitoring will support Scandinavian Airlines’ maintenance and engineering departments to identify, prioritise, analyse and handle in-service events.

This enables quicker decision-making and aircraft on-time dispatch while also minimising ‘aircraft on ground’ risks, helping the airline save time and reduce the cost of unscheduled aircraft maintenance.

By adopting Skywise, Scandinavian Airlines will integrate their own operational, maintenance, and aircraft data into the Skywise cloud, so the carrier  can store, access, manage, and analyse selected Airbus data, together with own data as well as global benchmarks without the need for additional infrastructure investments.

This resulting value will provide new insights at aircraft, fleet and company level while allowing the operator to enhance their operations through access to OEM expertise and global fleet context.
