News at a Glance
Ottawa, Canada (November 18, 2014) – Mxi® Technologies, the leader in aviation maintenance management software, announced today that Cape Air – the largest and fastest growing independent U.S. regional airline featuring a mixed fleet of 89 aircraft – has selected the Maintenix® system for its enterprise-wide fleet maintenance management.
Recently voted by Condé Nast Traveler readers as one of the “Best Airlines in America,” Cape Air has set its sights on driving greater operational efficiencies while scaling the business to service new locations. Meeting these objectives required an MRO solution that could deliver standardized processes across the maintenance management chain, and support greater integration with flight operations to optimize the scheduling of critical revenue flights.
Following a rigorous market review, Cape Air selected Maintenix Operator Edition as its MRO system standard, set to deliver automated, mobile-ready MRO functionality across the airline’s engineering, planning, execution and materials management functions. By reducing reliance on disparate information systems, Cape Air is looking to more effectively manage day-to-day operational requirements and meet ongoing regulatory compliance, while keeping in line with aggressive strategic growth plans.
“Cape Air strives to deliver the safest and most reliable flight services in the market today. This can only be achieved when all parts of the business – particularly Customer Services, Flight Operations and MRO – are working together as a unified entity,” says Linda Markham, President of Cape Air. “Maintenix proved to be the best solution capable of delivering all of the core functionality we need to streamline operations, facilitate timely information insights, and expand the business without ever compromising our commitment to customer satisfaction.”
“The commercial aviation market in North America, and in the U.S. in particular, is on the cusp of significant growth. Capitalizing on this opportunity requires the right mix of innovation, ingenuity and information. Cape Air has established itself as a model for what it takes to grow – and thrive – in the highly competitive U.S. regional market,” says Bill Cavitt, President and CEO at Mxi Technologies. “Mxi is proud to be teaming with Cape Air, and we look forward to helping them deliver on the promise of superior flight services for their customers.”
