Swiss International Air Lines, Jeppesen sign 3-year service contract

Jeppesen, a Boeing Company, has agreed to a new three-year service contract with Swiss International Air Lines, Ltd. (Swiss), the company said.

Through the agreement, Swiss will integrate Jeppesen Crew Tracking into their operations to optimize crew planning and recover from disruptions to planned crew schedules.

Jeppesen Crew Tracking is a component of a family of crew management solutions that optimize operations and increase efficiency for airlines. The data analytics-driven tool employs modeling and simulation to reveal insights that lead to better decision-making and actions. This provides airlines with the ability to detect, resolve, and follow-up on changes to originally published crew plans. The system supports an on-demand approach to issues management, with an alert monitor feature that warns of problems that need to be addressed.

To complement the Crew Tracking solution, Swiss will also enhance its crew management capabilities through the use of the crew communication tool Jeppesen Crew Access. This allows crew to easily check-in/check-out and view relevant roster and itinerary elements.

Swiss International Air Lines serves more than 100 destinations in 46 countries from Zurich and Geneva, and carries more than 16 million passengers annually through its 78-aircraft fleet.

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 air operations around the globe.

The Boeing Company, together with its subsidiaries, designs, develops, manufactures, sells, services, and supports commercial jetliners, military aircraft, satellites, missile defense, human space flight, and launch systems and services worldwide.
