GE will help China Eastern Airlines with data analytics
As part of the agreement, GE Aviation will provide digital analytics based on GE's big data platform that will define in-depth digital cooperation between the two companies for the next three years. The agreement covers more than 50 digital service projects spanning from engine and aircraft maintenance, flight safety, operational efficiency and marketing/revenue analytics.
GE Aviation and CEA started their digital collaboration in 2013. "Working with China Eastern over the past four years, we have made great progress by analyzing flight data and using it in a way to identify opportunities for operational savings for the airline," said Andrew Coleman, chief commercial officer for GE Aviation.
"This agreement marks a great example of comprehensive digital cooperation with an airline operator. It can significantly help China Eastern strengthen their flight risk management capability, as well as bring potential significant savings across the airline's operations," he added.
Feng Liang, vice president of CEA remarked: "Digitalization is the eventual objective of airlines. It's also an important development vision of CEA. In the process of transforming to digital, CEA is more than happy to cooperate with GE as a leading digital industrial company."
"We look forward to collaborating with GE to dig the "gold mine" of aerial data, operate our flights more safely, efficiently and profitably, as well as bring more values to the society and better benefit the industry."
