Japan Airlines (JAL) will expand Airplane Health Management (AHM) coverage with Boeing for its future 787 fleet.

AHM is a software system that monitors, collects and analyses aircraft data to give customers valuable, real-time maintenance information. JAL has 35 787s on order, and has licensed AHM for these aircraft in addition to its existing fleet of 46 777s, said Boeing.

The airline will use the AHM real time fault management module on their 777 and 787 aircraft to communicate in-flight information to ground stations for diagnosis and quick operational decisions by scanning troubleshooting and historical repair data.
