Frontier Airlines has adopted Airbus’ Skywise Health Monitoring as its key future fleet performance tool under a five-year contract covering 111 single-aisle aircraft.
Frontier becomes the latest North American operator to adopt the tool, which gathers live diagnostic feeds from the aircraft through its ACARS link to the airline’s information system, Airbus said.
The airline will use the solution for its A320 family fleet. Skywise Health Monitoring will support the airline’s maintenance and engineering teams by enabling real-time management of aircraft events and troubleshooting, Airbus said.
This will help the airline in identifying, prioritising, analysing and handling in-service events, enabling quicker decision-making and minimising AOG risks.
Airbus noted that Skywise Health Monitoring collates and centralises alerts, flight-deck effects and maintenance messages, prioritises them, correlates any faults with the relevant troubleshooting procedures, highlights operational impacts, provides the maintenance history of the system (from the logbook and MIS information collected through Skywise Core and stored in the data lake), allowing effective tracking of the alerts.
