Korean Air selects Ramco Aviation

Global Aviation software specialist, Ramco Systems announced its strategic engagement with Korean Air, a flag carrier of South Korea and its largest airline, to implement its flagship aviation software, Ramco Aviation Suite at Korean Air’s Engine Maintenance Center. This association was officially announced at MRO Americas 2024, Chicago.

This engagement comes close on the heels of the airline announcing the construction of its new engine MRO facility in Unbuk, near Incheon International Airport, claiming to be the largest engine maintenance plant in Asia, consolidating all engine MRO capabilities into a single cluster. The airline currently conducts MRO work on six engine models, and with this expansion, Korean Air is looking to add three more engine types to its aircraft family.

The implementation of Ramco’s Aviation Software will replace multiple legacy systems to streamline operations across current engine shops and planned expansion sites. With comprehensive MRO-specific functionalities, and integrated e-publications all on a unified platform, offered as an out of the box solution, Ramco Aviation will be the technological foundation for Korean Air. In addition, the airline’s engine maintenance center will also benefit from digital enablers such as Mobility via Anywhere Apps, HUBs, Dashboards and other integrations to the ecosystem offerings, powered by Ramco.

Ramco’s robust Engine MRO solution will cater to the current and future expansion plans of the airline, thereby strengthening the airline’s aircraft engine maintenance capabilities and solidifying its presence in the MRO segment.

Chan Woo Jung, Vice President and Head of Maintenance & Engineering Division at Korean Air, said “Airlines today are grappling with the need for efficient engine maintenance. These needs prompted us to embark on our ambitious journey to build Asia’s largest engine maintenance complex and expand our capabilities to service more engine types. In our search for the best Aviation MRO Software, Ramco Aviation emerged as an ideal choice. The implementation of Ramco’s Engine MRO capabilities will help us enhance our facility’s efficiency and precision and set new standards in engine maintenance, positioning us as a top MRO provider.”

Our relentless focus on building a best-in-class MRO Suite, complete with specialized Engine MRO functionalities, and bundled with cutting-edge tech stacks has truly proved to be a game-changer.
