Travel News Asia Latest Travel News Podcasts Videos Monday, 7 June 2010

Jade Cargo has signed an Airplane Health Management (AHM) deal with Boeing that will cover its fleet of six 747-400 Freighter airplanes. AHM is an information-driven system that helps airlines improve the management of unscheduled maintenance events.

Jade Cargo will incorporate all three AHM modules into its operation - Real-Time Fault Management, Performance Monitoring and Custom Alerting and Analysis.

The Real-Time Fault Management module communicates in-flight information to ground stations for diagnosis and real-time operational decisions to initiate any needed maintenance operations and deploy the necessary people, parts and equipment.

Performance Monitoring will allow Jade Cargo to analyze airplane performance data to improve airplane fuel efficiency and flight planning.

Custom Alerting and Analysis enables the airline to address developing airplane system issues by automatically monitoring, collecting, and transmitting service level information including tire pressure, oxygen pressure, hydraulic fluid, Auxiliary Power Unit and engine oil levels. Consumption trends are then used to facilitate maintenance planning and optimize service intervals.

Jade Cargo International was founded by Shenzhen Airlines Company Limited, Lufthansa Cargo AG and DEG - Deutsche Investitions - und Entwicklungsgesellschaft mbH, a subsidiary of KfW-Bank Group.
