China's Jade Cargo has signed an agreement with Boeing to use the airframer's Airplane Health Management (AHM) system to monitor its fleet of six Boeing 747-400 freighter aircraft.
The AHM system helps airlines improve the management of unscheduled maintenance events by providing real-time fault management and performance monitoring, and delivering this information to airline personnel through various communication channels including the internet, says Boeing.
"I believe AHM can extremely improve efficiency and reliability in our flight operation," says Jade Cargo International CEO Kay Kratky. "I am looking forward to more cooperation with Boeing."
Boeing's VP of fleet services for commercial aviation services, Dennis Floyd, says: "This is a big commitment by Jade Cargo to improve efficiency, maintenance performance and overall fleet awareness... We look forward to Airplane Health Management making a significant difference in the airline's operation."
