Air Astana has gone live with Aeroxchange’s ‘AeroBuy’ software platform, with plans to later implement ‘AeroRepair’.

    This will enable the airline to automate and accelerate its parts procurement and repair management processes, Aeroxchange said.

    Air Astana will also utilise AeroBuy and AeroRepair to improve sourcing opportunities and pricing, increase supply chain transparency and streamline communication with its trading partners.

    “By integrating its Trax system with the Aeroxchange platform, Air Astana will drive operational efficiencies, including eliminating the need to manage multiple connections with hundreds of suppliers,” said Aeroxchange’s president and CEO Albert Koszarek.

    “We are excited to bring Air Astana onto our network and look forward to expanding our presence in Central Asia and Eastern Europe.”

    Air Astana’s vice president procurement and supply Yerbol Baimbekov commented: “With the implementation of Aeroxchange, we believe we have the best solution to alleviate the traditional administrative burdens through automation and optimisation of processes.

    “We are confident that the efficiencies and effectiveness of the Aeroxchange platform come at the right time, as Air Astana continues to utilise technology and innovation to drive optimisation in light of the Covid-19 pandemic.”
