SpiceJet has selected AeroDocs safety and compliance document management system to control the distribution of documents and manuals into its fleet’s paperless cockpits.
AeroDocs will allow SpiceJet to distribute digital documents in a secure, controlled manner, with workflow tracking to help maintain regulatory compliance. The paperless cockpit, as enabled by AeroDocs, also brings environmental benefits, with reduced fuel burn and carbon emissions.
SpiceJet is an Indian low-cost airline headquartered in Gurgaon, India. It is India’s fourth largest airline by number of passengers carried, with market share of 12.6% as of August 2016 and a fleet of 50 aircraft. The airline operates 298 daily flights to 41 destinations, including 35 Indian and 6 international cities. SpiceJet flights have seen an occupancy of more than 90% for the past 15 months, the highest for any carrier in India.
SpiceJet is undergoing major growth. This growth brings the challenge of managing control over digital documents to maintain regulatory compliance. In March 2014, SpiceJet signed a $4.4 Bn deal with Boeing for the procurement of 42 737-8 MAX aircraft. SpiceJet is also in talks with both Boeing and Airbus for a further substantial order of single aisle aircraft.
AeroDocs is designed to handle every fleet size and any aircraft mix, so it will scale with SpiceJet. The AeroDocs deployment will go live in 2016, after testing, document upload, staff training programmes and regulatory approval are completed.
