Singapore Airlines Cargo links with Boeing for maintenance deal

Boeing and Singapore Airlines Cargo, a wholly owned subsidiary of Singapore Airlines (SIA), have announced they have entered into a maintenance, engineering, and planning agreement.

As a result, Boeing will provide GoldCare coverage for the cargo carrier’s fleet of 13 Boeing 747-400 Freighters.

GoldCare is a centrally managed and tailored materials and engineering service, with optional maintenance execution, that, when combined provides high value for customers by minimising airline risk, simplifying their business and providing improved cost management.

The long-term performance-based maintenance engineering contract builds upon previous maintenance support products purchased by Singapore Airlines Group, including Boeing’s Airplane Health Management, Integrated Materials Management Electronic Flight Bag, Electronic Logbook and Maintenance Performance Toolbox.

“The leadership of Singapore Airlines Group is very forward-thinking and they adopted many of Boeing’s IT and spares support products during the time that GoldCare was being developed for the 787 Dreamliner,” said Lou Mancini, senior vice president, commercial aviation services for Boeing.

“Together with maintenance engineering and planning, this brings together the major elements of GoldCare in a way that tailors the service to the needs of Singapore Airlines Cargo.”

A division of Boeing Commercial Airplanes, Commercial Aviation Services (CAS), with its 13,000 employees, helps customers maximize the lifetime value of their fleets and operations, providing customers a competitive edge in the marketplace.
