Boeing teams with ANA to improve operational efficiency
Boeing and ANA (All Nippon Airways) are teaming up to implement operational improvements for ANA’s fleet. The improvements are aimed at reducing costs and increasing efficiency of maintenance operations for ANA’s current and future 777 models as part of the Boeing Optimized Maintenance Program (OMP) service. ANA recently finalized orders for 20 777-9Xs and six 777-300ER airplanes. The Boeing Optimized Maintenance Program targets improved maintenance costs for ANA’s current 777-300 fleet as well as future deliveries of the 777X airplanes. Improvements will include reduced scheduled maintenance labor costs, lower materials costs and faster airplane maintenance turn times. The Optimized Maintenance Program provides a competitive advantage to an airline by applying specialized analytics tools as well as Boeing’s unique airplane design and certification knowledge to identify ways to streamline airplane maintenance programs. Boeing Commercial Aviation Services’ Professional Services teams will perform analysis of ANA historical maintenance data and develop a maintenance program for ANA’s 777 fleet.
