HONIARA, Solomon Islands, 31st October 2017. Rusada’s maintenance solution, Envision® has been deployed by Solomon Airlines as part of a technology refresh and consolidation project.
The airline, based in Honiara International Airport, is the national carrier for the Solomon Islands and operates a fleet of Twin Otters and a Dash 8 for its domestic operations and an A320 aircraft for international flights.
Before the technology project, Air Solomon’s maintenance information was managed using several separate legacy systems. The airline identified that consolidating many of these processes into a single system they would increase situational awareness and improve regulatory compliance monitoring.
Simon Obi, Solomon Airline’s CAMO Manager said: “As the Solomon Islands national carrier, it is critical that our airline maintains the highest standards of safety, maintenance and engineering. We recognised that as the demand on our fleet increases and the expectations of our regulators evolve, we would require a centralised maintenance information system to scale with these requirements.”
Rusada’s CEO Julian Stourton said: “Following a thorough technology evaluation, we were able to satisfy the team at Solomon Airlines that our Envision solution would meet their immediate and future requirements for an integrated maintenance information system”.
Julian continued: “Since signing the agreement in August, Solomon Airlines has been part of our Rusada ‘hyper-care’ program – an established project implementation methodology designed to facilitate a quick deployment – and is already live with the system”.
Solomon Airlines will continue to be supported by Rusada’s Australian based team who are responsible for the company’s customer base in the Asia-Pacific region.
