Boeing to Help Caribbean Airlines Streamline Its Maintenance Operations

Caribbean Airlines has adopted Boeing's [NYSE: BA] Web-based maintenance solution, Maintenance Performance Toolbox, to help improve the maintenance of its fleet of seven Next Generation 737-800s.

Caribbean will use available Toolbox modules including Library, Tasks, Structures, Authoring and Systems. These modules will help the airline streamline an array of maintenance and repair activities including managing technical publications and training, customizing online maintenance manuals, updating and tracking maintenance task cards, and performing core maintenance and engineering tasks.

"Boeing has exactly the right tools to help us build the kind of lean, competitive airline demanded by both the flying public and our board of directors," said Ian Brunton, vice president of Maintenance and Engineering for Caribbean Airlines. "We're pleased to be able to bring our customers a service enhanced by the very latest maintenance technology, which demonstrates our ceaseless commitment to reducing our operating costs and improving our productivity and performance."

The innovative suite of aircraft maintenance software solutions is the industry's first set of productivity tools designed to unify an airline's maintenance and engineering operations from start to finish.

"Maintenance Performance Toolbox is one of the key Boeing solutions to help airlines manage critical maintenance tasks," said Dan da Silva, vice president of Sales and Marketing for Boeing Commercial Aviation Services. "We're happy that Caribbean Airlines has endorsed Boeing as a partner to help it manage complex maintenance tasks in a competitive environment that demands efficiency and first-rate service."
