“We are pleased to be the first in the country to utilize Optimized Maintenance Program’s ability to use data to tailor a maintenance program specific to our needs,” said Zhao Dong, president and CEO, Xiamen Airlines. “This program allows our airline to benefit from innovation and smart technology to enhance our performance, maintain safety and best serve our customers.”

 

The Civil Aviation Administration of China (CAAC) recently accepted Xiamen Airlines using Boeing’s Optimized Maintenance Program.

 

Xiamen, an all-Boeing operator, also signed a 737 MAX and Next Generation 737 Simulator Services Package including hardware, software and data — as well as a suite of tools to enhance its digital capability — including Airplane Health Management, Maintenance Performance Toolbox and Loadable Software Airplane Parts.

 

“We are bringing the most advanced data analytics capabilities to anticipate Xiamen Airlines’ needs, and help them prevent problems before they occur. It’s a prime example of how we can integrate services solutions with our airplanes to help a customer drive down their maintenance costs,” said Ihssane Mounir, senior vice president of Commercial Sales & Marketing for The Boeing Company. “We are delighted to expand our partnership with Xiamen Airlines, and build on years of collaboration between our companies and the Civil Aviation Administration of China.”
