Boeing Technology Will Help Transavia France Enhance Efficiency
Transavia France chooses Maintenance Performance Toolbox to streamline maintenance

Boeing [NYSE: BA] and Transavia France announced that the airline has signed an agreement for the Maintenance Performance Toolbox to streamline maintenance on its Boeing fleet of 737 airplanes. Toolbox, which is becoming a must-have software package for efficiency-driven carriers, represents the industry's first set of productivity tools to unify an airline's maintenance and engineering operations from start to finish. Thirty-five carriers have acquired Toolbox since the first customer signed up in late 2005.

Transavia France has signed up for all five Toolbox modules: Structures, Systems, Library, Authoring, and Tasks which will help the airline manage technical documentation and records associated with aircraft maintenance and repair activities.

"The Maintenance Performance Toolbox, one of the key Boeing solutions to help airlines manage critical maintenance tasks, will increase the efficiency and operational effectiveness of Transavia France," said Dan da Silva, vice president of Sales and Marketing for Boeing Commercial Aviation Services.

Toolbox today comprises five different tools in one easy-to-use suite of software products available via an Internet browser as a secured, hosted service. A new module, Training, will be introduced later this year. This form of just-in-time Training will help airline mechanics and technicians train for specific tasks when and if necessary.

The Boeing Company is the world's leading aerospace company providing products and services to customers in 145 countries. Boeing Commercial Aviation Services, a unit of Boeing Commercial Airplanes, provides products, services and integrated solutions to improve fleet utilization, reduce costs, leverage leading-edge information management, and ensure passenger well-being.
