Press release date: April 9, 2014

Real-time information solution for Air Canada's 767, 777, 787 and 737 MAX fleets

PHOENIX – Boeing (NYSE: BA) today announced that Air Canada has signed an agreement to implement the Boeing Maintenance Performance Toolbox to support maintenance operations for its 767, 777, 787 and 737 MAX airplane fleets. The announcement came during Aviation Week's MRO Americas 2014 conference and exhibition in Phoenix.

The Maintenance Performance Toolbox suite delivers real-time access to information that technicians need to quickly resolve airplane maintenance issues. As part of the Toolbox deployment project, Boeing will also provide services for transition and migration of customized data from maintenance management applications currently used by Air Canada, and will enable integration with existing maintenance resource planning systems.

"Lean practices are essential to our operations," said Alan Butterfield, Air Canada vice president of maintenance and engineering. "By implementing Maintenance Performance Toolbox, we will be moving from legacy IT to 'lean IT' solutions. As we move ahead with fleet expansion, this Boeing solution will enable us to streamline and standardize access to maintenance information."

In addition to supporting its current fleet, Air Canada will implement Maintenance Performance Toolbox in maintenance operations for its new 787 airplanes. On April 1, Boeing and Air Canada finalized an order for 61 737 MAX airplanes. Toolbox will also be implemented for the new 737 MAX additions to the fleet as they are delivered.

"We continue to receive positive feedback from our airline customers about how Boeing Maintenance Performance Toolbox has helped to improve operations efficiency," said Per Noren, vice president, Customer Solutions, Boeing Digital Aviation, a business unit of Commercial Aviation Services. "We are excited to support Air Canada as they leverage this solution to achieve their goals for lean and efficient maintenance operations."

Today, more than 120 airlines rely on Maintenance Performance Toolbox to support their engineering and maintenance operations.
