Honeywell and Lufthansa Technik enhance collaboration on AVIATAR

  • Honeywell Connected Maintenance analytics to be fully integrated into AVIATAR.  

  • Collaboration among leaders in aviation analytics helps optimize user experience. 

Honeywell (NASDAQ: HON) and Lufthansa Technik are enhancing their collaboration on Lufthansa Technik’s digital platform AVIATAR to improve the customer experience in aviation analytics. Honeywell Connected Maintenance analytics are now being fully integrated into AVIATAR’s Predictive Health Analytics (PHA) suite, which will grow to more than 100 Predictors for multiple Airbus and Boeing aircraft types. Airline customers will benefit from AVIATAR’s unique interfaces to airline data, processes, maintenance and engineering systems, allowing a fleetwide management of multiple aircraft types.  

Building on the long-standing relationship between Honeywell and Lufthansa Technik, this new long-term agreement is beneficial for aircraft operators on the journey to digital technical operations (Tech Ops). Airlines can take advantage of an integrated single product offering designed to help reduce maintenance costs, technical delays and cancellations in airline operations. AVIATAR’s integrated data analytics capabilities, enriched with Honeywell Predictors, are part of a seamless digital product portfolio for airline Tech Ops.  

“Together with Honeywell we are enhancing the digital excellence of AVIATAR,” said Nikolaus Koerner, Senior Director Commercial Steering, Digital Fleet Services at Lufthansa Technik. “The new offering creates a unique suite of predictive Tech Ops solutions, integrating world-class analytics in one true nose-to-tail product offering across many different ATA chapters and aircraft types. Airlines will benefit from a consistent user experience and access to the full range of analytics along with connections to the wide portfolio of solutions provided by our Digital Tech Ops Ecosystem, including AMOS and flydocs.” 

“The collaboration between Honeywell and Lufthansa Technik combines decades of experience with aircraft maintenance and digital transformation,” said Karen Miller, General Manager, Honeywell Connected Aerospace. “The resulting predictive analytics solution is designed to help airlines increase the availability of their aircraft and reduce costs associated with operations, flight delays, and cancellations.” 

AVIATAR’s modular, open and neutral architecture has been developed to seamlessly interface to various IT systems operated by airlines and MROs around the world, a prerequisite for collaboration in aviation. The integration into AVIATARs suite of digital Tech Ops solutions allows customers, for example, to take advantage of MRO Management interfaces, automation, and digitally enhanced MRO services. 

Valuable attention to ​detail

Ensuring aircraft quality

The foundations are laid at the very beginning – this also applies to new aircraft. Defects and quality flaws that occur during the production and assembly of an aircraft often become visible only later and can subsequently lower the value of the airplane. Since we know the technical characteristics of aircraft inside out, we ensure the quality of your flying assets right from the start – even before they are handed over to you. 

2,300aircraft of all popular types have been monitored during production by our aircraft inspection staff in the last twelve years

From ​Start to Final Assembly

One modular product serves all

Our Aircraft Production Inspection Program (APIP) is a modular product. Depending on your needs, we offer to scrutinize the entire production process – from the very first inspection of any sub-assemblies to the final assembly and the final acceptance of the aircraft. 

Our aircraft production inspection modules include:

  • Section Inspections
  • Final Assembly Line
  • Acceptance/Delivery Support
  • Supplementary Services: Concession/NCR Assessment, Storage Inspections and Delivery Document Review

Embedded in the Factory

On your behalf

We operate permanent locations at all major Airbus (Toulouse, Hamburg, Mobile) and Boeing (Everett, Renton, North Charleston) final assembly sites and also monitor the production of other manufacturers, such as ATR and Embraer. Our inspectors act as your representatives onsite and on your behalf during all phases of your aircraft's production and assembly. They also help to avoid possible delays of the airplane delivery and associated costs. 

We look at the aircraft through the eyes of the airline. Our inspectors have many years of experience and are well aware of the weaknesses of the aircraft, especially from a long-term perspective.

Long-term Value

Tailored to airlines and lessors

A thorough aircraft inspection pays off for all aircraft owners and operators, be it airlines or leasing companies. While airlines typically take advantage of large portions of the inspection services portfolio, lessors and banks may be more interested in a tailored package that is adapted individually to their needs and concentrates on specific core elements like structural inspections and build deviations that might impact the asset value. Top-notch quality at the very core of the business of lessors – the aircraft – secures the long-term value of these assets. In turn, you as a lessor boost your reputation by providing your customers with reliable jets.
