Binter Canarias will adopt Embraer’s ‘Beacon’ digital platform for its E195-E2 fleet maintenance.
The Canary Island airline conducted a successful testing of the coordination platform, which connects resources and professionals for the quickest return of aircraft to service. Beacon is an agnostic platform that serves aircraft from all manufacturers, Embraer said.
The contract marks Beacon’s first with a European airline.
“As the flagship of the Canary Islands, Binter serves travellers who require comfort and timely, uninterrupted service,” said Marco Cesarino, head of Beacon.
“They face a unique challenge in maintenance coordination with a distributed workforce. Through their trials, Binter has confirmed the benefits of real-time collaboration and insights facilitated by Beacon. We expect this will be the first of many successful leaps forward as Beacon clients keep flying.”
Binter’s director of operations Javier Bretón commented: “We began our Beacon platform trials with high expectations that it would improve aircraft availability and workforce allocation. Beacon has proven to be an important resource for our maintenance teams, and we are glad to move forward to a commercial contract.”
