LATAM Airlines Extends Maintenix System Across Enterprise with Induction of LATAM Brazil’s Fleet and Shop Operations

Former LAN and TAM fleet maintenance departments consolidate on a single Maintenix IT platform

Ottawa, Canada (July 20, 2016) – Mxi® Technologies, the leader in aviation maintenance management software, today announced that LATAM Airlines (LATAM) has successfully extended the Maintenix system footprint across its enterprise with the recent Go Live of LATAM Brazil’s fleet and third-party MRO Shops operations. With this latest milestone, Maintenix now serves as the standard maintenance management platform for consolidated fleet management.

As Latin America’s leading domestic and international passenger and cargo carrier, LATAM first went live with Maintenix in 2011 when it was then known as LAN Airlines. After the merger with TAM Airlines, the company set out to expand its Maintenix solution in phases across TAM’s mixed fleet and MRO operations. The most recent milestone encompassed the entire Airbus fleet of 138 A32F aircraft – one of the largest inductions in terms of data volume – and followed closely on the heels of a go live with LATAM Brazil’s Boeing wide-body fleet in the Fall 2015.

“The overall efficiencies that we have seen across our maintenance organization since our initial adoption of the Maintenix software have been significant,” said Hernan Pasman, Senior Vice President of Operations and Maintenance at LATAM Airlines. “This made it a natural decision to extend the solution to include all LATAM Brazil fleet maintenance management – a move we expect will help us continue to succeed in the marketplace as we further evolve and standardize business and operational processes across the enterprise.”

“LATAM Airlines has continuously demonstrated their dedication to growth, efficiency and best practices in aviation maintenance, and this expansion of Maintenix is no exception,” said Bill Cavitt, President and CEO at Mxi Technologies. “Mxi applauds LATAM on what I am confident is yet another significant step forward in their mission to drive operational and service excellence in a world-class airline, for their passenger customers and cargo.”
