GE Aviation will provide a comprehensive digital analytics solution for the China Eastern Airlines (CEA) fleet of more than 700 aircraft over the next three years.

GE Aviation and CEA started their digital collaboration in 2013. The new agreement covers more than 50 digital service projects spanning from engine and aircraft maintenance, flight safety, operational efficiency and marketing/revenue analytics.

"Digitalization is the eventual objective of airlines. It's also an important development vision of CEA. In the process of transforming to digital, CEA is more than happy to cooperate with GE as a leading digital industrial company," said Feng Liang, VP of CEA. "We look forward to collaborating with GE to dig the ‘gold mine’ of aerial data, operate our flights more safely, efficiently and profitably, as well as bring more values to the society and better benefit the industry."
