Arconics delivers AeroDocs to SpiceJet

Published: Thursday, November 3, 2016

Aircraft software company Arconics announces a significant software deal to deliver AeroDocs, the leading document management system for aviation, to SpiceJet. SpiceJet is a successful and fast-growing LCC, with a fleet of 42 aircraft, mainly Boeing 737s, and 42 B737 MAX 8s on order.

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 undergoing major growth, along with the Indian aviation market in general. This growth brings the challenge of managing control over digital documents to maintain regulatory compliance. In March 2014, SpiceJet signed a $4.4 billion 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. SpiceJet has more than doubled its profit in the first quarter of the current fiscal year.

AeroDocs is designed to handle every fleet size and any aircraft mix, so it will scale with SpiceJet. The AeroDocs deployment will go live this year, after testing, document upload, staff training programmes and regulatory approval are completed.
