Binter Canarias and Embraer signed a contract to adopt the Beacon digital platform for its E195-E2 fleet maintenance. The Canary Island airline's decision came after successful testing of the coordination platform that connects resources and professionals for the quickest return of aircraft to service. Beacon is an agnostic platform, that serves aircraft from all manufacturers.

This is Beacon's first commercial contract with a European airline, which shows that the digital platform continues to expand its presence in this market, serving a growing number of aircraft and locations.

“As the flagship of the Canary Islands, Binter serves travelers who require comfort and timely, uninterrupted service. They face a unique challenge in maintenance coordination with a distributed workforce. Through their trials, Binter has confirmed the benefits of real-time collaboration and insights facilitated by Beacon. We expect this will be the first of many successful leaps forward as Beacon clients keep flying”, said Marco Cesarino, Head of Beacon.

“We began our Beacon platform trials with high expectations that it would improve aircraft availability and workforce allocation. Beacon has proven to be an important resource for our maintenance teams, and we are glad to move forward to a commercial contract,” said Javier Bretón, Director of Operations for Binter.
