- Ireland-based AerCap implements Asset Transfer System software for fleet of 1,740 aircraft, over 900 engines, 300 helicopters, and an order book for more than 400 new technology aircraft
- ATS provides increased efficiency, enhanced collaboration for AerCap’s 300 customers
- Implementation validates GE Digital as a software leader in aviation
SAN RAMON, Calif. – MAY 9, 2023 -- GE Digital, an integral part of GE Vernova’s portfolio of energy businesses, today announced that AerCap, the world’s largest lessor of commercial aircraft, engines, and helicopters, has implemented its Asset Transfer System (ATS) software. The use of GE Digital’s ATS will modernize asset records management across AerCap’s fleet of 1,740 aircraft, over 900 engines, and 300 helicopters, providing increased efficiency and enhanced collaboration for their 300 customers.
The use of GE Digital’s ATS by the largest commercial aircraft lessor validates GE Digital’s position as a software leader in the aviation space. Earlier this month, Norwegian, Norway’s largest airline, selected GE Digital’s ATS for its aircraft fleet.
“We are thrilled that AerCap, the largest aviation lessor in the world, is using ATS to optimize operations across their global fleet of aircraft, engines, and helicopters,” said Andrew Coleman, General Manager of the GE Digital’s Aviation Software business. “Bringing increased efficiencies to aircraft transitions and maintenance record keeping is an important step forward in the aviation industry’s digital transformation journey. We are confident that AerCap’s customers will see a noticeable improvement in efficiency during transitions and maintenance record processing.”
ATS is a highly collaborative tool designed to streamline and simplify airlines’ day-to-day records management activities, including the way asset documentation is managed between airlines, lessors, and maintenance, repair, and overhaul (MRO) teams. This process is complicated, time-consuming, and inefficient without the help of software because throughout the life of an asset, original equipment manufacturers (OEMs), MROs, and airlines generate large amounts of documentation that must be shared with each other for daily operation, recurring audits, and asset transitions.
