All Nippon Airways (ANA) has agreed to
provide Boeing 787 GoldCare customers with an airline’s
perspective on the entry into service process.

new 787 operators with maintenance control and line maintenance
oversight during entry into service.

program and excited to support them with our proficient knowledge
and expertise,” said Tatsuhiko Mitsukura, executive vice
president, Engineering & Maintenance Center, ANA.

operator (with 40 787s in service and 43 on order), has
accumulated more flight cycles and hours than any other 787
“Boeing values ANA’s accumulated experience and
expertise with 787 operations and maintenance,” said Stan Deal, senior vice president, Commercial
Aviation Services, Boeing Commercial Airplanes. “That expertise
will complement Boeing’s OEM knowledge and portfolio of services,
which is the broadest and deepest in the industry.”
