S7 Technics (formerrly known as Engineering Holding) has become the first MRO provider in Russia to introduce predictive maintenance of the fleet operated by S7 Airlines. Both companies are subsidiaries of S7 Group. The provider’s deputy general director for finance, Roman Fyodorov, revealed at the recent MRO Russia & CIS 2018 convention in Moscow that a pilot project is being carried out on S7 Airlines’ Airbus A319s, which are the carrier’s most intensively utilized airliners.

As of early 2018, S7 Airlines had 19 A319s. All flight data, including information about any defects and AOG situations for the last five years, were uploaded to S7 Technics’ software, Fyodorov told Russian Aviation Insider. Based on this information, the provider jointly with its IT partner Datadvance performed a bulk of calculations, creating models which can forecast technical malfunctions.

This new software is critical to the airline’s efforts to reduce departure delays due to technical reasons, Fyodorov stressed. Eventually the technology will cover the entire S7 Airlines fleet.
