Etihad Airways And Taleris Implement New Technology To Predict Aircraft Maintenance Faults, Reduce Flight Delays

Etihad Airways, the national carrier of the United Arab Emirates, has entered into an agreement with global technology company Taleris to launch groundbreaking new technology which can help predict potential maintenance faults and recommend preventive action.

Taleris’ web-based prognostics service, a part of its Intelligent Operations offering, is a first for the commercial airline industry and will be used to monitor Etihad Airways’ fleet of Airbus and Boeing aircraft. The prognostics technology will leverage the Industrial Internet to increase the airline’s overall operational efficiency.*

It is expected to deliver significant financial savings for Etihad Airways and improved reliability for passengers and freight customers as the technology continuously analyses data from multiple sensors on aircraft components and systems, and warns of imminent problems.

The expected benefits include a reduction of unscheduled maintenance, fewer delays and cancellations, increased aircraft availability, enhanced on-time performance, increased maintenance efficiency, reduction in maintenance costs and reduction in lost revenue costs.

The service also can reduce the requirement to store expensive spare parts, which are typically stocked in case of failure.

Norm Baker, president and CEO of Taleris, said: “Around the world, airlines are seeking ways to manage their maintenance and flight operations more efficiently and Taleris is proud to work with Etihad Airways as we launch our new Intelligent Operations service . Significant benefits can be realized through our predictive analytics technologies which leverage an aircraft’s data within the context of the operations so one can address an issue before it occurs.”

The new Taleris-developed prognostics use unique data analytics based on the already established global Probabilistic Diagnostic and Prognostic System (ProDaPS) technology standard which monitors engineering systems anomalies and overall systems health.

Werner Rothenbaecher, Senior Vice President Technical at Etihad Airways, said: “This represents a leap forward in maintenance prognostics technology and we look forward to realizing the benefits of this deal with Taleris.
