Amsterdam, The Netherlands; 25 April 2017
AerData, a Boeing Company, announced today an agreement with Emirates airline for AerData’s EFPAC (Engine Fleet Planning And Costing) software. AerData’s software and services improve efficiencies and enhance competitiveness for customers, including some of the world’s largest airlines, lessors and MROs.
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 utilizes algorithms to predict component life and create a visualization of the most optimized plan. The optimized plans predict engine component life, shop visit requirement details and reduces costs in both maintenance and downtime.
Customers have reported that EFPAC reduces their annual engine maintenance costs by 10-15 percent or more, saving potentially tens of millions of dollars per year for a fleet. This is because EFPAC analyzes in hours what typically takes an airline weeks to examine using other methods.
Commenting on the announcement, Ahmed Safa, Emirates Senior Vice President, Engineering Support Services said, “We are delighted to have enhanced our partnership with AerData by adding the EFPAC software to our portfolio. 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. Coupled with Emirates use of AerData’s market leading digital records management software, STREAM, this further highlights the power of the AerData team to address industry needs through innovative software and services solutions.”
