It will also optimise the maintenance and engineering operations for its fleet of 15 ATR aircraft.

A new service provided by ATR to its operators, this three-year digital maintenance documentation contract consists in providing customers with raw data of line maintenance publications in XML format, to be uploaded into the airline’s Maintenance Information System via ‘AMOS’, the comprehensive solution designed by Swiss-AS to optimise the digitalisation of airline maintenance management.

Through this three-party cooperation and innovative service, Air Algérie will benefit from both time and costs savings, and improved safety and compliance. The airline will be able to shorten revision processes, make the distribution of publications swifter and paperless, reduce preparation time for maintenance checks, standardise the structure and format of its documentation, improve information consistency across all aircraft manuals, automate revision tracking and document control, therefore saving time while preparing regulatory audits.

Laid Bouchama, technical director of Air Algérie said: “We are proud to be the launch customer of this new service that will help us streamline our daily maintenance procedures, reducing downtime and increasing our fleet’s availability. This three-party cooperation ensures that we all benefit from the greatest expertise in terms of on-the-ground operations, engineering insights and digitalisation, to the benefit of our passengers who will appreciate the reliability of our service.”

Fabiano Faccoli, chief executive officer of Swiss-AS, commented: “We are pleased to see that the partnership agreement recently signed with ATR already benefits our customers, and that our digitalisation solutions are a real support to their daily operations. It’s technology at its best, making our customers’ daily tasks easier and ensuring they can focus on core and value-added activities.”

Stefano Marazzani, ATR’s SVP Customer Support and Services, said: “Seeing an established customer like Air Algérie placing its confidence in one of our new products is the best recognition of the value of our expertise. ATR’s new Digital Maintenance Documentation package will be a decisive tool, empowering Air Algérie to further optimise its maintenance management processes, which ultimately means more reliable and accessible connectivity for the local communities.”
