Finnair Technical Services is to use SkySelect’s eProcurement-as-a-Service platform to digitise the procurement of aircraft parts and further drive innovation within Finnair.
“SkySelect’s transformative approach to parts purchasing, using advanced AI algorithms, makes us overall more efficient while aligning with our top-level company strategic cornerstones of innovation and sustainability,” said Finnair’s head of supply chain management Pete Reinikkala.
In addition to digitising and automating purchasing, SkySelect gives Finnair Technical Services tools for its sustainable development targets by consolidating and reducing the airline’s carbon footprint. The platform helps to combine shipments, simplify logistics and minimise the number of shipments.
Finnair has stated aims of being carbon neutral by 2045 and to cut its net CO2 emissions by 50 per cent by 2025.
“It’s great to work with customers like Finnair who push the entire industry towards efficiency, innovation and sustainability,” said SkySelect’s head of implementation Jeroen van Duren. “We’re proud to not only digitise and automate Finnair’s parts purchasing process but work together to improve air transportation for everyone involved.”
