Boeing's Maintenance Performance Toolbox Reaches 100-Customer Milestone

  • Star Air to increase efficiency of 767 freighter fleet

Boeing (NYSE: BA)  today announced that Star Air, a cargo airline based in Dragoer, Denmark, is the 100th airline to sign up for Boeing's Maintenance Performance Toolbox. Introduced in 2005, Toolbox is the industry's first set of productivity tools designed to unify an airline's maintenance and engineering operations from start to finish.

Star Air operates 11 Boeing 767 freighters.

Toolbox allows airlines to improve their dispatch reliability through the use of e-enabled technologies available via an Internet browser as a secured, hosted service.

Toolbox comprises seven different modules in one easy-to-use suite that can help airlines streamline a wide range of maintenance and repair activities from managing technical publications, troubleshooting problems, to performing core maintenance and engineering tasks. Airlines are free to pick and choose from among the capabilities to supplement their operations as needed.

"Toolbox has a strong track record of delivering essential information faster and more reliably than other systems," said Dennis Floyd, vice president of Fleet Services for Boeing Commercial Aviation Services. "Reaching a milestone of 100 customers in seven years is testament to Toolbox's ability to help airlines efficiently manage their maintenance practices and provide the latest, most accurate information to their maintenance and engineering teams."

In addition to Star Air, other airlines using Toolbox include Air China, Copa Airlines, Emirates, Japan Airlines, Lufthansa, Ryanair, Southwest Airlines and TUI Travel.
