Jeppesen to provide crew management services for SkyWest, ExpressJet

Jeppesen, a part of Boeing Commercial Aviation Services, said it has entered into an agreement to provide crew management services for SkyWest Airlines and ExpressJet Airlines, which are both operated by SkyWest, Inc.

Through a recent agreement, Jeppesen now provides SkyWest and ExpressJet with its Crew Pairing optimization solution, to maximize scheduling efficiency.

“Jeppesen Crew Pairing allows us to improve how we plan and execute optimized crew assignments and schedules, to the benefit of our overall operating business model,” said Jim Jensen, vice president, Information Technology, SkyWest, Inc. “We look forward to realizing bottom line results from enhancing the complex process of pairing fleet-wide crew assignments.”

Using Jeppesen Crew Pairing, SkyWest and ExpressJet are now able to optimize a full monthly crew schedule, instead of a typical daily or weekly outlook. Typically, airline use of Jeppesen Crew Pairing reduces crew planning and operations costs by an average of three to 15 percent annually and greatly reduces the time needed for crew planning and implementation.

For more than 80 years, Jeppesen has made it possible for pilots and their passengers to safely and efficiently reach their destinations. Today, this pioneering spirit continues as Jeppesen delivers transformative information and optimization solutions to improve the efficiency of air and sea operations around the globe. Jeppesen is a Boeing (NYSE: BA) subsidiary and part of the Digital Aviation business unit within Boeing Commercial Aviation Services.
