Boeing is expanding its GoldCare service to include the Next-Generation 737 product line and is in advanced discussions with multiple customers regarding the tailoring of GoldCare solutions for their 737 fleets.
GoldCare is available to 787 Dreamliner customers and Boeing is expanding the service in response to airline customer demand.
“We’ve designed GoldCare to bring value to our Next-Generation 737 customers by boosting aeroplane reliability, which will reduce cost and improve efficiency throughout the aeroplane’s lifecycle,” explained Jay Maloney, vice-president, fleet management for Boeing Commercial Airplanes. “The airline will be able to focus on what it does best – flying its aeroplanes and serving its passengers.”
Under GoldCare, Boeing leads and integrates a global team to deliver maintenance engineering, planning and execution and material services with a predictable cost based on aircraft flight hours. Simplified maintenance operations and logistics aim to allow GoldCare customers to focus on their passengers while their airplanes are maintained to the highest standards of excellence by Boeing, supported by GoldCare partners.
GoldCare is also designed to provide additional peace of mind for leasing operators. A new operator, when receiving a leased aircraft covered by GoldCare, is assured that its maintenance adheres to the requirements established by the manufacturer.
The 737 GoldCare offering is designed as a multi-year service, supported by a network of suppliers to support parts ownership, repair and overhaul requirements and provide all levels of airframe maintenance services.
