Aerospace and defence startup Aermetric is deploying its maintenance software to commercial carrier Alaska Airlines.

“We’re consistently looking at ways to enhance how we monitor and maintain our aircraft using data.” said Jason Lai, Managing Director of Engineering for Alaska.

“Adopting innovative technology to bolster operations is part of that journey. Aermetric built a truly standout platform that will help us continue to over-deliver on aircraft safety and reliability to do just that.”

Aermetric Maintenance Platform

The Aermetric Maintenance Platform is a SaaS maintenance and logistics hub that enables near-real-time analytics and smart fleet management for enterprise assets. According to Aermetric, its proprietary technology increases aircraft availability while providing substantial savings from unplanned maintenance.

“We are on the edge of a digital transformation in aerospace” said Derek Waterman, Founder and CEO of Aermetric. “Forward-thinkers like Alaska see major value in turbocharging their reliability programs with the power of big data—we’re excited to make that happen for them.” Waterman added, “Alaska is a world class airline with a legacy of caring greatly about its guests, and that perfectly aligns with our vision to create value for everyone who flies.”
