Avion Express goes digital with fleet-wide ETL system

Avion Express

Narrowbody ACMI and charter airline Avion Express has become the first airline in Lithuania to completely replace paper logbooks with a state-of-the-art electronic system.

The integration of an Electronic Technical Log (ETL) system across its fleet has eliminated the time-consuming process of handling and sending paper documents, thereby reducing administrative overheads.

Aistis Urbonas, vice president of technical at Avion Express, said: “This step aligns with our commitment to innovative decisions within the aviation industry, proving to be timely and offering clear value.

“At Avion Express, we believe that digitalising is the path to the aviation future, primarily working for the safety of our passengers and the effectiveness of the airline. We constantly search for the most modern solutions in every step of our work.

The ETL centralises data visibility, ensuring that more information is readily available in one place. This promotes faster and greater efficiency in various tasks and, most importantly, allows to analyse all the data. This is crucial not only for Avion Express’ operations but also for delivering the highest quality service to ACMI customers.

Urbonas added: “It is pivotal to analyse data, compare it, and make decisions based on it. Analysing and comparing data and making informed decisions is crucial.

“With the introduction of the electronic logbook system, we now have all the digital data, which enables us to track and improve our and our customers’ Key Performance Indicators (KPIs) more effectively.

“This also allows us to assess the overall performance of the fleet, the performance of the maintenance provider, etc.

With the Avion Express fleet having recently expanded, the volume of manual work has naturally increased.

Urbonas said: “By automating and simplifying tasks that previously required manual effort, we’re ensuring that our skilled professionals can use their time and expertise in areas where their contributions are most impactful.

“This enhances not only our operational efficiency but also the job satisfaction of our team members.”

To ensure a smooth transition to the ETL system, Avion Express said it conducted comprehensive training sessions for all users from pilots, and cabin crew, to engineers and base operators.
