Delta Air Lines will become the first major U.S. carrier to use a digital Airbus platform that flags potential mechanical and hardware problems, a move that could reduce operating costs as higher fuel prices squeeze profits.

Launched in 2017, the cloud-based Skywise system gives participating carriers and suppliers access to open-source performance and quality data on certain Airbus planes. The information is intended to help airlines run more efficiently, curbing flight delays and cancellations caused by maintenance issues.

Delta Chief Executive Officer Ed Bastian touted the partnership as a win for customers and said it would allow the company to "provide an exceptional, reliable experience." The platform should also help the Atlanta-based airline manage expenses as it grapples with a $2 billion increase in jet fuel costs after President Trump's withdrawal from the Iran nuclear accord.

Operating costs at Delta rose 11.6 percent to $10.3 billion in the three months through September, largely due to a $655 million spike in fuel costs. Delta said it will employ the Skywise platform for its narrow-body A320 and wide-body A330 jetliners.

Also Monday, Boeing announced it would begin marketing and selling a platform from Flightdocs Enterprise that allows customers to track maintenance operations on the cloud-based system instead of relying on paper records, an offering that could also lead to cost savings for airlines and suppliers.

"Together, we are working towards delivering incredible, integrated tools that will transform business and general aviation operations by offering efficiency and cost savings to operators of all brands and aircraft types across the globe," Rick Heine, chief executive officer of Flightdocs, said in a statement.
