Emirates and Boeing have entered a Memorandum of Understanding (MoU) to revolutionise aircraft maintenance operations through cutting-edge digital technologies. The collaboration aims to introduce drone-assisted inspections, enhance precision with virtual and augmented reality, and implement advanced prognostic and predictive maintenance techniques.
Emirates’ adoption of drone technology enables swift and precise exterior inspections, while Mixed Reality tools enhance aircraft component exploration, minimising human error and reducing downtime. Boeing’s next-gen prognostic and predictive maintenance technology provides advanced analytics for informed decision-making.
Emirates Engineering, a globally recognised aircraft maintenance facility, manages an extensive fleet with a 400,000 square meter facility overseeing maintenance, engineering, quality, planning, and logistics for Boeing 777 and Airbus A380 aircraft.
