MIAMI, Nov. 26, 2018 /PRNewswire/ -- WestJet, a low cost scheduled and charter air service, is the second largest air carrier in Canada serving 107 destinations in Canada, the United States, Europe, Mexico, Central America and the Caribbean. It operates a fleet of 126 Boeing 737 NGs, 737 Max and 767s with 60 more 737s and 787s on order. WestJet has been rapidly expanding its domestic and international operations. It has three affiliated airlines: WestJet Encore, WestJet Link and the newly launched ultra-low cost carrier Swoop.
In keeping with its ambitious improvement and expansion plans, WestJet elected to go mobile with its maintenance operation. WestJet plans to implement the web-based Line Control application and the QuickTurn app during its first phase, followed by incorporation of the TaskControl and AeroDox apps in the second phase. Having tasks, job cards and manuals on a tablet allows for offline access at the point of work for the AMEs and will result in significant time savings. Real gains will be achieved in performance, processes and business intelligence analysis.
WestJet joins the increasing number of TRAX customers incorporating eMobility apps with their TRAX eMRO or Maintenance & Engineering software in the search for an efficient paperless maintenance operation.
