Jeppesen, a Boeing Company, has signed a multiple-year agreement with AirAsia to provide digital charting and electronic flight bag (EFB) services for all AirAsia Group affiliates, the company said.
The agreement covers a total of six airlines within the AirAsia Group, which are based in Malaysia, Thailand, Japan, India, Indonesia and the Philippines. The AirAsia Group will receive tailored digital flight information and Jeppesen FliteDeck Pro electronic flight bag (EFB) services on Window tablets to optimize operations.
Through a previous agreement, Jeppesen had provided AirAsia X with Jeppesen´s suite of navigation and operations services. Advancing to digital flight information through the use of FliteDeck Pro allows the AirAsia group to operate more efficiently by eliminating paper content, which improves fuel consumption.
FliteDeck Pro also enhances situational awareness, using real-time, data driven flight information. FliteDeck Pro also significantly reduces flight preparation time and pilot workload.
Jeppesen, a Boeing subsidiary and part of the Digital Aviation business unit within Boeing Commercial Aviation Services, delivers transformative information and optimization solutions to improve the efficiency of global air operations.
