Moving closer to achieving its mission of operating in a paperless flight environment, Mumbai-based Jet Airways has renewed for five more years and expanded its agreement with Jeppesen Services for electronic flight bag (EFB) tailored digital charting and navigation.

Jeppesen will help Jet Airways transmit real-time flight data between pilots and operations staff, including weather, maintenance logbooks and ground information, in an integrated format.

“We rely on Jeppesen’s leading navigational data and charts and we are looking forward to expanding implementation of Jeppesen EFB services for our entire fleet, which will help decrease the workload for our pilots and crew,” says Hassan Al Mousawi, senior VP-flight operations and on-time erformance.

Jeppesen’s airway manual charts for digital navigation are provided for Jet Airways in the agreement through web-based e-Link tailored charting services, presented in a Windows operating environment.

Jet’s subsidiaries, Jetlite and Jetkonnect, will also benefit with FliteDeck Pro and other Jeppesen products.
