British Airways has confirmed it is to make use of Boeing’s Airplane Health Management (AHM) system to monitor the in-flight condition of more than 100 Boeing twin-aisle jetliners. AHM will be used on the airline's current 777 and 747-400 fleets and future deliveries, including 787 Dreamliners.

Through the system, British Airways will be able to track in-flight faults and make real-time operational decisions regarding maintenance, in order to deploy the necessary people, parts and equipment to address the issue before the airplane arrives at the gate.

“We are always looking for the most innovative and effective tools for improving our management and maintenance of BA’s fleet,” said Garry Copeland, engineering director, British Airways. “The Boeing AHM system will allow us to continuously improve aircraft downtime, minimize delays and analyse aircraft performance trends. The system has proved very effective during our testing, so we are pleased to be rolling it out across the long-haul fleet.”

British Airways operates a wide range of Boeing jetliner models, including 747-400s, 777s, 767s, 757s and 737s, and has 24 787s on order.
