Boeing announced services orders valued at more than $900 million during the Singapore Airshow in February. “Boeing is serious about helping customers optimize the performance of their fleets and reduce operational costs throughout the lifecycle,” said Stan Deal, president and CEO of Boeing Global Services. “Predicted growth for aerospace services in the Asia Pacific brings opportunities to partner with local industry to understand the region’s greatest needs, invest in new capabilities to meet those needs, and then bring them to market quickly.”
The agreements stretch across Global Services’ four capability areas, including parts; engineering, modifications and maintenance; digital aviation and analytics; and training and professional services.
Many of the agreements were with regionally-based operators including contracts with All Nippon Airways, GAMECO, Malaysia Airlines and Royal Brunei Airlines.
Singapore Airlines signed a contract to use Electronic Logbook on its 777 and 787 fleet. As a Boeing electronic flight bag app, the Electronic Logbook replaces paper logbooks with digital records that improve operational efficiency, Boeing says. Additionally, Singapore’s Defense Science and Technology Agency signed an agreement to engage in collaborative research and experimentation activities, powered by Boeing AnalytX.
Other worldwide agreements included an Alaska Airlines agreement to renew Jeppesen Flight Planning for its 737 fleet, Biman Bangladesh Airlines has expanded its use of Boeing’s Component Services Program, and DHL ordered one 767-300ER Boeing converted freighter.
Honeywell Aerospace signed a contract extending Aviall’s product support agreement as the exclusive distributor for Honeywell Aerospace through 2022, covering interior and exterior lighting equipment for all commercial aftermarket product sales. Products covered include indicators, annunciators and other components used on commercial aircraft.
Lufthansa Group signed an agreement for 25 landing gear exchange and overhauls across its 777-200F and 777-300ER fleets for AeroLogic, Lufthansa Cargo and Swiss International Airlines. The service eliminates the need for the operators to contract, schedule and manage the overhaul process.
