PSA Airlines selects IFS Maintenix

Posted 19 April 2017 · Add Comment

Enterprise applications company, IFS, announced today that PSA Airlines (PSA), a wholly owned subsidiary of American Airlines, has selected IFS Maintenix to support its enterprise-wide fleet maintenance management requirements.



This latest deal comes on the heels of other recent contracts with leading airlines such as Copa Airlines, Cape Air and Southwest Airlines, and reflects the IFS Maintenix software’s expanding footprint among operators of all sizes across the Americas.

It is the first order to be announced since the IFS acquisition of Mxi closed in January 2017.

PSA recently embarked on a strategic growth plan that has seen its fleet more than double from 49 aircraft to 115 since 2014, with plans to operate up to 150 Bombardier CRJ aircraft. To meet evolving operational demands, the airline was looking to replace its legacy maintenance system with a modern, scalable software solution which could significantly reduce reliance on manual processes and drive greater standardisation and process efficiencies across its maintenance management chain.

Following an extensive market review, PSA selected IFS Maintenix as its maintenance IT system to deliver complete lifecycle MRO functionality across the engineering, planning, line maintenance and materials management departments. By enabling more real-time, automated maintenance management, PSA Airlines is taking the necessary steps to meet strategic objectives while staying focused on their mission of safety, quality and compliance.

“In this competitive market, PSA Airlines prides itself on providing customers with the highest degree of customer service and operational performance that comes from well-maintained aircraft, professional and dedicated staff, and on-time passenger services delivery,” said Gary Pratt, Vice President, Maintenance and Engineering at PSA Airlines. “Throughout the evaluation process, it readily became apparent that IFS Maintenix was the right solution capable of meeting our needs for a modern, flexible, and user-friendly approach to maintenance management and compliance control.”

Scott Helmer, SVP, Aviation and Defence at IFS added, “It is always a tremendous source of pride when a respected organisation such as PSA Airlines joins our growing customer community. This relationship is indicative of aviation services providers recognising the inherent business gains that come with using a system which can deliver on the promise of standard, lean and predictable aviation maintenance. We look forward to working closely with PSA Airlines in helping them continue to be among the top brand names in the regional airlines market.”

IFS Maintenix is a fully-integrated, web-enabled and mobile-ready software platform specifically built to address the complete spectrum of aviation maintenance in a single integrated business solution. It features capabilities including controlled workflow, graphical maintenance planning, point-of-maintenance access to real-time information, and paperless execution and compliance, enabling aviation organisations of all sizes to maximise the revenue potential of their mission-critical aviation assets.
