2015 Aircraft Commerce MRO IT Americas – Miami, FL, Booth E10 (March 25, 2015)  – Mxi® Technologies, the leader in aviation maintenance management software, announced today that Mesa Airlines – one of the largest and fastest growing U.S. regional airlines featuring a mixed fleet of 97 aircraft – has selected the Maintenix® system to support its company-wide fleet maintenance management needs.

A multiple-time recipient of Air Transport World’s Regional Airline of the Year Award and ranked No. 1 Regional Airline three consecutive years by the DOT Air Travel Consumer Report, Mesa Airlines was looking to replace its legacy maintenance system with a modern software solution that could deliver greater standardization and process efficiencies across its maintenance management chain – particularly in the areas of configuration control and compliance, planning, and materials management.

Following an extensive market review, Mesa Airlines selected Maintenix as its system standard, set to deliver fully-hosted, mobile-ready functionality across the airline’s planning, production, materials and engineering departments. By driving more real-time maintenance management, improved integration between maintenance and flight operations, and stronger reporting, analytics and financial tracking, Mesa Airlines is taking the necessary steps to best capitalize on aggressive strategic growth plans.

“Mesa Airlines is committed to safeguarding our brand as the most reliable and trusted name in the U.S. regional airline market. At a time when we are witnessing tremendous growth, we need to ensure our back-office processes – most notably maintenance operations – are helping us deliver on the promise of exceptional customer service,” says Jonathan Ornstein, Chairman and CEO of Mesa Airlines. “Maintenix met all of our core requirements for a maintenance solution that could deliver the right mix of innovation, ingenuity and information insights, keeping us at the forefront of a fast-evolving and highly-competitive market.”

This latest deal for Mxi Technologies comes on the heels of a contract with Cape Air, and reflects the Maintenix software’s ongoing expansion among U.S. operators of all sizes.

“Mesa Airlines’ commitment to modernizing its MRO practices and driving greater operational efficiencies serve as testament to what it takes to remain successful in the burgeoning U.S. market,” says Bill Cavitt, President and CEO at Mxi Technologies. “Mxi is proud to welcome a market leader like Mesa Airlines into the Maintenix community, and we are honored to be working closely with them to ensure their tradition of outstanding customer service continues unabated.”
