TAP Air Portugal awards digital fleet support contract to Lufthansa Technik

TAP Air Portugal has signed a five-year digital support agreement with Lufthansa Technik for its entire Airbus fleet.

The airline will implement Lufthansa’s AVIATAR solution – including condition monitoring, event analytics, and fleet map – to digitally optimise its aircraft operations and benefit from cost savings.

Commenting on the partnership, TAP Air Portugal’s chief technical officer Mário Lobato de Faria said: “TAP Air Portugal follows a stringent selection process for service providers. Following an experimental period, AVIATAR has met and confirmed our expectations concerning functionality, teamwork and continuous improvement efforts to strengthen and digitalize our technical fleet support.

“Therefore, we are looking forward to benefitting from increased aircraft availability, paving the way for predictive maintenance and further cost savings as well as a close, future-oriented relationship with our partner Lufthansa Technik.”

Launched in 2017, AVIATAR is the independent platform for digital products and services developed by Lufthansa Technik. The platform offers its users modular digital products ranging from predictive maintenance to fulfilment and automated solutions.

Lufthansa Technik’s vice president if corporate sales EMEA Kai-Stefan Roepke added: “Our experience in digital fleet services and tech-ops support will help us to further improve TAP Air Portugal’s fleet operations. We look forward to continuing our trustful partnership and further expanding our collaboration also as innovative development partners.”
