Japan Airlines now using RTX


Collins Aerospace, an RTX business, and Japan Airlines (JAL) have announced that JAL will use Collins Aerospace’s Ascentia maintenance performance monitoring solution on its Boeing 787 fleet.

The cloud-based predictive maintenance solution uses advanced data analytics and machine learning algorithms to help airlines improve maintenance operations and increase aircraft reliability. By analysing flight data and maintenance records in 
real-time, Ascentia can help predict potential maintenance issues and provide recommendations for corrective actions before they occur, which helps to reduce unscheduled downtime and improve aircraft availability.

“Ascentia is a valuable addition to our maintenance programme,” said Harada Kuniharu, Manager Reliability Group, System Engineering Office at JAL Engineering Co Ltd. “Using Ascentia, we can further improve our maintenance operations and provide our passengers with a safer and even more reliable travel experience.”

“Ascentia is designed to help airlines improve their operational efficiency,” said Clotilde Enel-Réhel, Executive Director for Customer Programmes at Collins Aerospace. “Our data-driven solution will provide JAL with predictive maintenance recommendations to optimise their schedule and improve their customers’ experience.”

Collins Aerospace’s Ascentia solution is currently in use by several major airlines around the world and has been shown to improve aircraft reliability and reduce unscheduled maintenance costs by up to 20%. Equipping JAL’s Boeing 787 fleet with Ascentia represents a significant milestone for Collins Aerospace as it continues to expand its presence in the Asia-Pacific region.
