  • Continued support for Turkmenistan Airlines to achieve compliance with international air safety standards

    Turkmenistan Airlines (TUA) is committed to raising their performance following difficulties in satisfying relevant EASA (European Aviation Safety Agency) requirements at the beginning of this year. Since then, the airline with Lufthansa Consulting has developed and agreed on corrective action plans and has also begun implementing them. Together with the aviation experts from Lufthansa Consulting, the operator is continuously working on both the management system changes and the practical implementation. This involves improvement of main management systems, particular the Safety and Quality management system, documentation development and process implementation, personnel training, software implementation and equipment procurement, and most importantly, cultural changes within the company.

    As an update to the initial meeting in March, the management of Turkmenistan Airlines accompanied by Lufthansa Consulting on 29 May 2019 presented a progress report on the improvement in safety standards to the EASA Third Country Operators (TCO) team, which is the technical advisor to the EU Air Safety Committee (ASC). 

    To stay informed about the continuous efforts by TUA to resolve the initial findings and work on the corrective action plans supported by Lufthansa Consulting, EASA has welcomed the next progress meeting during the second part of July. As a further step towards achieving compliance, the airline expressed its intention to start the formal request for the mandatory on-site assessment by EASA in early August 2019.

    Lufthansa Consulting airline safety experts continue to support TUA in guiding the implementation of the safety improvement measures and monitoring the progress along its comprehensive action plan, which covers among others improvement of SMS and flight data monitoring, restructuring of the CAMO and Part 145 organization, the ground operations organization and standards in flight operations to achieve compliance requirements and prepare for IOSA audit.

    Turkmenistan Airlines is the flag carrier of Turkmenistan with headquarters in the country’s capital Ashgabat. The airline operates domestic and international passenger and cargo services mainly from its hub at Ashgabat International Airport. The airline transports more than 5,000 passengers daily within the country and nearly three million passengers annually on the international and domestic routes together. The fleet consists of modern Western aircraft (such as Boeing 737, 757, 777) and a cargo fleet of IL 76.
     

  • Airbus Helicopters: learning best practice from the experts

    Lufthansa Consulting has been involved in several helicopter safety and operations projects so it was with great interest that our Solution Group Flight Operations and Safety Management visited Airbus Helicopters to learn about their newest products and services. Airbus Helicopters has very high safety standards and the company is constantly striving for further excellence. Lufthansa Consulting has profound expertise in flight operations and a safety reputation in the fixed wing area. The consultants aimed to learn from Airbus in order to develop best practices in the rotary wing area, but also to discover opportunities for cooperation. 

    Head of Aviation Safety Management and International Quality Network, Matthias Klein, welcomed the group and showed them the new production line for the new model (H160) where the production process has been significantly optimized and shortened.

    The visit provided both an exciting and valuable chance to learn more about modern helicopter production. “It was a fantastic opportunity to experience helicopters being produced live. I found the insights into their Safety Management System (SMS) for test flights extremely interesting” commented Liége Emmerz, Partner and Head of the Solution Group Flight Operations and Safety Management.

    The safety standards at Airbus Helicopters are incredibly high throughout the whole value chain from conception to production, through to the test flights and the daily operation by clients. “I found the presentation about accident analysis particularly impressive and valuable” said Harald Berg, Managing Consultant.

    Lufthansa Consulting has been working in the helicopter business for many years. We have supported Petrobras (Petróleo Brasileiro S.A.), the largest Brazilian oil and gas company, in flight safety issues related to their helicopter fleet since 2005. The cooperation has been so successful that Lufthansa Consulting opened an office in Rio de Janeiro in 2014. Our experts have excellent knowledge of the helicopter market in Latin and South America, which is an important region for Airbus. In Russia and the CIS our aviation consultants have project experience supporting oil and gas companies to help improve their helicopter operations

    Lufthansa Consulting offers professional support to clients aiming to improve the safety mangement of their helicopter operations. Our flight safety expertise combined with our understanding of the strict requirements for helicopter operations specifically in the oil and gas industry is a great benefit for helicopter operators. Our consultants help oil & gas companies to achieve new standards in flight safety and to make this a requirement in contracts with their helicopter and/or fixed wing operators too.

    The headquarters of Airbus Helicopters, which our consultants visited, is located at Marseille International Airport in Marignane, France. 8000 employees build a range of helicopters for both military and civilian purposes. The company has a worldwide market share of 54% with 413 contracted orders in 2018 from 158 clients in 47 countries.
