Emirates selects IFS Applications to manage new engine overhaul facility

IFS, the global enterprise applications company, announces that Emirates, one of the world’s fastest growing international airlines with one of the youngest fleets in the sky, has selected IFS Applications™ 8 to manage its new engine overhaul facility in Dubai, UAE. The solution will support all business processes including maintenance, repair and overhaul (MRO), and corporate performance management (CPM). The contract includes licenses and services worth in excess of US$6 million.

In 2011, Emirates announced the construction of Asia’s most technically sophisticated engine overhaul facility in Dubai. The facility will cover 90,000 square meters and will serve as Emirates’ in-house engine overhaul facility.

IFS Applications will support all operations at the overhaul facility, which, when fully operational, will service up to 300 engines per year. The solution includes IFS’s Complex Assembly MRO feature, which has previously been delivered to Finnair and Alitalia Maintenance Systems. The solution also offers advanced CPM capabilities and integrated support for finance and HR.

“Emirates is one of the world’s most dynamic airlines and its new engine overhaul facility will undoubtedly set new industry standards in MRO process efficiency,” said Ian Fleming, Managing Director, IFS Middle East, Africa and South Asia. “We are proud to be a part of this project, which reaffirms our leading position in the Aerospace industry.”

The implementation will be completed in the first half of 2014.
