British Airways Engineering’s avionics business celebrates million units milestone

British Airways Engineering, a leading Maintenance, Repair & Overhaul (MRO) provider, has today announced that its avionics subsidiary has achieved an important milestone for the company, having released over one million units since it was established in 1994. This equates to an average annual release rate of almost 52,700 units. The avionics team has been responsible for servicing avionics equipment for a wide variety of aircraft over its 18 years of existence. This has included iconic aircraft of the past, such as Concorde, as well as the latest generation of aircraft in service today.
In order to increase the efficiency and scale of its operations, British Airways Engineering’s avionics subsidiary has introduced lean manufacturing processes and a culture of continuous improvement, changes which have been a major factor in today’s milestone. These operational efficiencies have contributed to avionics arisings (units released) increasing from 38,000 in 1994 to 80,000 in 2011.
Brian Currie, GM for Interiors and Avionics at British Airways Engineering, commented: “This is an incredible achievement for the avionics team, and speaks volumes about our commitment and hard work in providing for the vast number of aircraft we service every year. As technology has evolved, so too have the skills of our employees, who are some of the best engineers in the industry. We have grown into a commercial organisation with the skills to provide engineering services for a range of fleets for our customers. Today’s announcement sends a clear message to the market that we have the capacity and skillset required to provide for even the most demanding of global carriers.”
