Lufthansa Technik Middle East (LTME) and Sanad have signed a technological collaboration agreement to develop innovative and technological solutions to digitize maintenance, repair and overhaul (MRO) operations within the aviation industry.

The goal of the agreement, which was signed at this week’s Dubai Airshow 2021, which ends at Dubai World Central on November 18, is for LTME and Sanad to support the growing digitization needs of MRO companies by investing in the research and development as they prepare for a digitized future.

The two partners intend to use digital capabilities such as artificial intelligence (AI) and virtual reality (VR) to digitize their MRO processes and optimize their overall offerings in the market. In line with the UAE’s strategic initiative ‘Operation 300 Billion’ and the focus on deploying Fourth Industrial Revolution (4IR) technologies, the two companies aim to streamline their maintenance processes with these digital capabilities. by developing and implementing digital solutions designed to reduce time and costs. and finally to better serve their end customers.

“Our collaboration with Lufthansa Technik has identified areas for improvement common to all MRO processes, and this agreement will seek to address these by reducing turnaround times. »Mansour Janahi, [Deputy Group] CEO, Sanad said. “The partnership plays an essential role in improving our processes and will enable our teams to be able to support a greater number of client projects and to maintain our position as world leader in MRO services.

“In the expected return of MRO activity to post-COVID growth, digitization will play a decisive role,” said Ziad al Hazmi, CEO of LTME. “Therefore, we are proud to partner with Sanad to further advance our capabilities in this area together. I am convinced that this new cooperation will not only improve our competitiveness, but will also open up whole new possibilities and capabilities for MROs in the Middle East. And most importantly, it will soon bring the first benefits to our valued local and international customers. “

Collaboration with Sanad and the use of new technological tools should help LTME to digitize MRO processes and eliminate redundant ones, as well as regulatory approvals for remote inspection; ultimately resulting in a faster exchange of information.

LTME’s contribution to the collaboration can build on Lufthansa Technik Group’s long-standing experience in digitizing MRO processes, which in the past already extended from advanced robotics and virtual and augmented reality to networks. private, artificial intelligence and predictive algorithms, just to name a few.
