The low-cost carrier becomes the largest A320 operator to roll out Collins GlobalConnectSM
The Collins GlobalConnect solution enables the already-installed Flight Operations and Maintenance Exchanger system (FOMAX), jointly developed with Airbus, to provide easyJet valuable insights into its fleet operations, enabling proactive decision-making and more efficient airline operations.
The adoption of this data exchange and analytics capability also brings the potential to simplify the avionics architecture, leading to further fuel efficiency gains through the gradual removal of quick access recorders. The airline projects that cutting this additional weight could save up to 500 tonnes of carbon per year when rolled out fleet-wide.
"We are constantly seeking innovative solutions that enable our aircraft to be more connected," said
"The FOMAX system in conjunction with GlobalConnect is designed to empower airlines with comprehensive data-driven insights, allowing them to enhance their operations and passenger experience," said
GlobalConnect services across easyJet's fleet will be progressively activated in the coming months, starting before year-end 2023. This marks a significant milestone in easyJet's digital transformation journey and underscores the airline's dedication to embracing cutting-edge technologies that benefit its passengers and the environment.
