Boeing Airplane Health Management supports China Eastern’s fleet
China Eastern Airlines and its subsidiaries Shanghai Airlines and China United Airlines are implementing Boeing Airplane Health Management (AHM) to improve maintenance and engineering operations efficiency across China Eastern’s rapidly growing fleets. Boeing and China Eastern teams have deployed the Boeing Airplane Health Management system on 157 Next-Generation 737 airplanes. The contract extends to eventually cover AHM deployment for a total of 250 737s. Additionally, 20 777-300ER (Extended Range) airplanes on order by China Eastern will also use Boeing AHM. Airplane Health Management is part of an integrated suite of aviation services marketed as the Boeing Edge. These include parts, training, engineering, maintenance and software solutions that increase the efficiency and profitability of airlines and leasing companies.
