AerData, an aviation software company subsidiary of Boeing Company, announced an agreement with Emirates airline for AerData’s EFPAC (Engine Fleet Planning And Costing) software.

According to AerData, EFPAC helps customers optimize engine maintenance planning, engine spares availability and budgets. By combining technical and operational data with lease requirements and fleet renewal constraints, operators can make the best decision for their operations.

EFPAC will help replace a manual planning process for Engine maintenance at Emirates Engineering with an automated system resulting in faster and better decision making.”

Matt Bull, CEO of AerData said, “We are delighted to further extend our long-standing partnership with Emirates. EFPAC brings data analytics to Emirates finger tips reducing uncertainty, optimizing their entire engine maintenance operations, and unlocking the power of the data contained within their organization.
