Flatirons Grows Customer Base in China with CORENA Suite Sale

Reflects Global Demand for Manufacturer-independent Maintenance and Engineering Solutions

Flatirons Solutions continues to grow its client base in China with the recent sale of its aircraft maintenance solution (the Flatirons Fleet Solution) to Hainan Ruijian High-Tech, a Chinese-based partner, and Hainan Technik, the maintenance, repair, and overhaul (MRO) provider for Hainan Airlines Company, the largest privately owned air transport company in China and the fourth largest airline in terms of fleet size in the People’s Republic of China. The sale of the Flatirons Fleet Solution through its Chinese partner reflects the growing demand in the global aviation industry for proven alternatives to proprietary maintenance and engineering solutions traditionally provided to operators and MROs by primary airframe manufacturers.

Hainan Airlines serves nearly 500 domestic and international routes and flies to more than 90 cities. Hainan Technik services the airlines’ Airbus and Boeing aircraft from 100 outstations and will begin using the Flatirons Fleet Solution to manage maintenance and engineering documentation for its family of Airbus aircraft. Its choice of Flatirons’ Fleet Solution gives the MRO provider the ability to add documentation for the group’s Boeing fleet into the same system, helping Hainan Technik to fully manage and control all of the group’s maintenance information for the mixed fleet in one system.

“Airline operators and MROs around the world are under tight pressure to keep up with increasing demands for passenger traffic while demonstrating the utmost attention to operational safety,” said Geoffrey Godet, CEO of Flatirons Solutions. “This means simplifying the systems that help aircraft maintenance personnel service their fleets from Airbus, Boeing, and other manufacturers while providing the most comprehensive capabilities to ensure operational excellence. Flatirons is pleased to support customers in China with the only OEM-independent, innovative solution on the market today that meets these needs.”

This recent CORENA Suite sale builds on Flatirons’ current work with Chinese OEMs and suppliers, its development center in Shanghai, and the company’s sales presence in Beijing that is responding to continued growth opportunities in the region.
