|dc.description.abstract||In recent years, the aviation market has gradually decreased. This phenomenon was caused mainly due to the price of jet fuel increasingly and unpredictably soaring higher by leaps and bounds, the outpouring of terrorism and so with economic recession all contributed to this decline. Under the circumstance of the diminishing passenger and cargo’s revenue, it is of vital importance to control the maintenance cost effectively should carriers still attempt to keep making profit. Specialized field and complexities of maintenance factor which is one of the main players for running the airline, still it is controllable and even though the aircraft maintenance cost is not the largest portion of the whole operation costs for airline. There is, however, insufficient information in internal compilation with regard to reducing aircraft maintenance cost which is unable to optimize systematic and complete procedures.
This research, firstly, access the structure and intention through the characteristics of aircraft maintenance and operation cost, giving the detailed statement with regard to fundamental model of reducing maintenance cost and the current industry applied. Eventually, this write-up adopted a case study combined with experience and performance in connection with the maintenance cost control for further analysis and development. This article is hoped to find an efficient model for maintenance cost control in terms of feasibility and application. In a highly dynamic environment, nevertheless, an airline has to find out an appropriate mode for itself gradually via evaluation and adjustment/correction progressively and systematically in order to improve operation status and reach the set goal. Also, this study has collected a lot of information from relevant reports, studies and many experts as references to give the interested party maximum information to a successful airline industry.||en_US|
