Japan Airlines – 2 Years on ULTRAMAIN ELB and Mobile Mechanic Software

Ultramain Systems would like to take the opportunity to reflect on our partnership with Japan Airlines (JAL) and congratulate them on reaching two years of operational use of ULTRAMAIN Mobile Mechanic and ULTRAMAIN ELB for paperless line maintenance and electronic logbook.

Ultramain first began working with JAL as they embarked on their digital transformation journey in support of their first A350. With over a decade of experience in developing and implementing mobile applications, Ultramain was in a unique position to help JAL maximize the operational efficiencies they were seeking.

Japan Airlines first went live on ULTRAMAIN ELB Enterprise and ULTRAMAIN Mobile Mechanic  on their A350 fleet, and became the first airline to obtain Ops Approval from the Japan Civil Aviation Bureau (JCAB) for paperless system-of-record electronic logbook use. All subsequent A350’s at Japan Airlines have enjoyed paperless operations.

Once the A350 project was complete, JAL turned their attention to their Boeing 737 fleet. Today, all JAL 737’s are paperless as well. 

In the following case study, ‘The Journey to perfection at JAL Engineering’ Yuki Naki, Director of Planning, JAL Engineering shares the secrets of achieving 100% on time performance through mobility and paperless solutions.

Thank you, JAL, for trusting us to assist with your digital transformation journey. We look forward to your continued success.
