Mexican low-cost carrier Viva Aerobus has contracted FLYdocs to digitise the maintenance records across its fleet of 47 aircraft.

    The companies have signed a three-year agreement. They said Viva Aerobus would benefit from “full digital aircraft compliance on-demand” by taking advantage of the FLYdocs platform’s enhanced integration with Swiss AviationSoftware’s ‘AMOS’.

    “Last year we committed to becoming the greenest airline in Mexico as sustainability is at the heart of our operational strategy. Our partnership with FLYdocs will undoubtedly add value and strengthen those efforts by allowing us to utilise digital technology to drive a paperless approach to our maintenance records,” said Viva Aerobus’ engineering & maintenance VP Francisco Morgado Morfín.

    “As the first airline in the Americas to resume 100 per cent of its operational capacity in such a challenging climate, we are optimistic that the team at FLYdocs and the platform’s unique integration with AMOS will help us maintain our resilience and adaptability as we continue to propel Mexico’s air travel industry in a safe and responsible way.”

    FLYdocs’ director of commercial & marketing John Bowell commented: “We are proud to have our first client in Central America which is a huge milestone for us. This is just another example of how our industry is experiencing a real mindset shift when we consider the increased rate of technology adoption.

    “Viva Aerobus have always stood out as a champion for digital innovation which is also sustainable, so our partnership felt very natural with our aligned ambitions. We strongly believe that the solutions we are providing for Viva and soon the region at large will last long beyond the pandemic, resulting in improved efficiency, better communication, and transparent data.

    “This is an exciting start to what I’m sure will be a long and rewarding collaboration with the team at Viva Aerobus.”
