(Englewood, Colo., November 16, 2007) -- Jeppesen and Qatar Airways recently finalized an agreement for Electronic Flight Bag (EFB) applications and data for the airline's new Boeing 777 aircraft that will feature the Boeing Class 3 EFB. The first aircraft is scheduled for delivery this month. Jeppesen will also provide the airline, including the Royal Amiri Fleet, with its e-Link system so that charts and data can be accessed electronically by ground-based personnel, such as dispatch and operations.
Jeppesen will help Qatar Airways implement a successful EFB program that includes Jeppesen's industry-standard terminal charts for EFBs, airport moving map, onboard performance tool, a document viewer and the Jeppesen Data Distribution and Management system that administers a critical piece of a customer's EFB program-software configuration management and the ability to consistently deliver flight-critical data accurately, securely and on time to the EFB.
"Qatar Airways is a perfect example of a growing, innovative airline adopting the latest technology to streamline operations and enhance the situational awareness of the flight crew," said Thomas Wede, senior vice president and general manager, Jeppesen Commercial and Military Aviation. "We are very pleased to add Qatar Airways to the growing list of airlines who are realizing the efficiency our advanced digital navigation solutions offer."
