ANA Extends Boeing Maintenance Performance Toolbox for Entire Fleet for Another Five Years
All Nippon Airways (ANA) has signed an extension for Boeing’s Maintenance Performance Toolbox for another five years. ANA has used the Boeing digital solution for the past eight years to manage maintenance information for their entire fleet of aircraft and engines.
From the Singapore Airshow on Wednesday (February 16, 2022), Boeing announced that All Nippon Airways (ANA) has signed an extension for Boeing’s maintenance Performance Toolbox for another five years. The carrier has used the Boeing digital solution for the last eight years to manage maintenance information for their entire fleet of aircraft and engines. Boeing’s Maintenance Performance Toolbox allows operators to simplify maintenance operations by enabling them to distribute, process and view intelligent maintenance documentation in a uniform digital format through a single interface, regardless of aircraft manufacturer or engine type.
In Wednesday’s announcement, ANA’s Vice President – Digital Transformation Portfolio Management, Hajime Kaneko, said,
“The adoption of Maintenance Performance Toolbox is one example of how we have streamlined our maintenance processes through digital tools. It has greatly reduced the complexity of managing maintenance information for multiple airplane types across our entire fleet. We’ve seen efficiency improvements in our maintenance operations, and we’ll continue to use Maintenance Performance Toolbox to take advantage of those benefits.”
Boeing Global Services’ Vice President of Digital Aviation Solutions, Duane Wehking, added,
“ANA was a development partner for Maintenance Performance Toolbox and was the first customer to go live with the platform’s full-fleet capability in 2013. We look forward to continuing to grow and improve Maintenance Performance Toolbox through our collaboration with ANA in support of streamlining their maintenance operations.”
Currently, nearly 350 airplane operators and their MRO providers rely on Boeing’s Maintenance performance Toolbox to support engineering and maintenance operations. ANA’s affiliate AIRDO is also partnering with Boeing to provide cabin modification services for the carrier’s Boeing 767s. Under the agreement, Boeing will execute the design engineering and certification, and will also supply the required parts.
