Recent Boeing supply chain services agreements with All Nippon Airways, Cathay Pacific, and Xiamen Airlines streamline maintenance, repair, operations, and parts management.

  • Japan’s All Nippon Airways: expanded an agreement for consumable and expendable services to its entire fleet.
  • Cathay Pacific: Home carrier of Hong Kong renewed a multiyear agreement for consumable and expendable services
  • Evergreen Aviation Technologies Corp. (EGAT): New multiyear agreement for comprehensive part coverage from Boeing’s network of global distribution centers to support EGAT’s maintenance, repair, and overhaul (MRO) operations to several global airlines

  • Xiamen Airlines: Three-year agreement for a tailored parts package to support its full fleet of Boeing Next Generation 737 and 787 Dreamliner airplanes
  • KAEMS: Integrated inventory management solution agreement for consumables and expendables parts in support of growing MRO capability

The agreements allow airlines to focus on operations, not parts and inventory management.

In Asia-Pacific, new Boeing digital services deals include:

  • Vistara: Indian joint venture of Tata group and Singapore Airlines, has an agreement for Maintenance Performance Toolbox and Airplane Health Management tools to support 787-9 aircraft
