Jeppesen, Virgin Australia form crew operations agreement

Jeppesen, a part of Boeing Commercial Aviation Services, will provide Virgin Australia with its Crew Tracking solution through a new service agreement. The Jeppesen crew management tool will help the airline monitor and resolve changes or disruptions to set crew schedules.

Virgin Australia General Manager, Operations Planning, Shane Lord said: “Efficient crew management is a key focus for us. Jeppesen´s Crew Tracking solution will help us minimise the impact of disruptions in real time.”

Jeppesen Crew Tracking helps airlines detect, resolve and follow up on changes made to previously published crew schedules. The system alerts airlines in real-time with updated information on numerous crew scheduling factors, including short connection times, missed check-ins, visa status, and more. Advanced system tools repair and re-plan crew rosters accordingly, to maintain operational continuity.

For more than 80 years, Jeppesen has made it possible for pilots and their passengers to safely and efficiently reach their destinations.
