Ottawa, Canada (April 7, 2011) – Mxi® Technologies, the leader in aviation maintenance management software, today announced that LAN Airlines (LAN), Latin America's leading domestic and international passenger and cargo carrier, has gone live with an enterprise-wide implementation of Maintenix®.
"The decision to migrate from our legacy system was based on our need for a sophisticated system that would support LAN’s dynamic business environment,” said Ruy Lotz, Technical Support Director, LAN. "Mxi Technologies’ Maintenix software was chosen based on its advanced functionality and close match of capabilities to our evolving requirements. With Maintenix we are able to validate airworthiness in real-time at aircraft release, which is integral to LAN’s dedication to quality and safety.”
Mxi Technologies’ Maintenix software replaces LAN’s legacy VISaer system — alongside more than 20 other internal sub-systems — and serves as the single source for maintenance information across the organization, fully integrating with their ERP backbone. The Maintenix software also fully integrates to LAN’s SPEC-2000 purchasing, shipping, and flight operations systems using standard interface products. By consolidating business information and offering greater organizational transparency, Maintenix is able to support the distributed nature of the LAN Alliance’s operating environment, which spans across the group’s nine airlines.
"LAN is committed to establishing high-level benchmarks for aviation maintenance, both within its own organization and within the industry,” said Dave Seibel, Chairman and CEO, Mxi Technologies. “In implementing Maintenix, LAN has further demonstrated this commitment and will be able to decidedly strengthen its competitive position within Latin America and abroad."
LAN Airlines is one of the leading passenger and cargo airlines in Latin America. The company and its affiliates serve over 70 destinations around the world through an extensive network that offers full connectivity within Latin America, while also linking the region with North America, Europe and the South Pacific, as well as 70 additional international destinations through its various alliances. LAN Airlines and its affiliates have a leading position in their respective domestic markets of Chile and Peru as well as an important presence in the Argentinean and Ecuadorian domestic markets. Furthermore, in November 2010, LAN acquired Colombian airline AIRES.
Currently, LAN Airlines and its affiliates operate one of the most modern fleets in the world, with 118 passenger aircraft, and its cargo subsidiary, LAN CARGO and its respective cargo affiliates, have a fleet of 13 dedicated freighters. The Company has one of the youngest fleets in the world, which has meant greater efficiency and a significant reduction in CO2 emissions, reflecting its strong commitment to environmental protection.
LAN is one of the few Investment Grade airlines in the world (BBB). The company’s world class quality standards enabled its membership in oneworld™, the global alliance which LAN has been a member of for over 10 years that encompasses the best airlines in the world.
