Canary Islands flag carrier will embark on a trial partnership with Beacon. The trial will start in September with five E195-E2 jets
Beacon, the maintenance coordination platform connecting resources and professionals for faster return-to-service aircraft, powered by EmbraerX, embarks on a trial partnership with Binter Canarias S.A., the flag carrier of the Canary Islands. During this trial, Beacon will support all maintenance operations and accelerate aircraft’s return-to-service time by integrating the platform into the airline’s stations with further steps to include the roll-out to their on-call maintenance providers.
“Binter is our first launch into the commercial aviation market in Europe. We are leveraging our shared experience with Embraer and will begin the onboarding of Binter into Beacon,” said Head of Beacon, Marco Cesarino. “The Canary Islands are a new environment for us, where we plan to showcase the power of real-time collaboration for distributed workforces. We want to focus on customers like Binter who fly in environments with distributed teams because it highlights the power of Beacon – where connectivity was limited before, they can now be on Beacon, powered by technology.”
With the first commercial operator in the region, Beacon’s expansion in Europe will empower Binter’s teams to accelerate aircraft’s return-to-service. Onboarding will begin with Binter’s five E195-E2 jets and can gradually expand to other aircraft types. This collaboration is set to start this September.
“We look forward to getting started and seeing how our daily operations will be impacted by Beacon’s use. It is a promising concept, and expectations are extremely high to improve not only the fleet availability but also the airline’s human resources,” said Director of Operations of Binter, Javier Bretón.
Beacon’s platform will continue to expand its footprint across the commercial market, the number of aircraft served, the stations supported, and its mission to reduce out-of-service time and delays for all types of aircraft across the globe.
