Orenair and Fokker Services have agreed to implement the EFB solution for iPad® on the airline’s entire fleet. This will provide savings in weight as well as enhanced accessibility of information and performance data.

“The success of our EFB solution for iPad® is continuing to grow”, said Heino van der Laan, VP Marketing & Sales at Fokker Services. “We are very pleased that Orenair, a well recognized airline in the Russian market, has selected our solution. This brings the total number of aircraft in Russia using our solution to more than 125.”
The Fokker Services EFB solution for iPad® covers not only the hardware to mount and power the iPad®, but also the associated certification and supporting data, such as manual supplements, to ensure that airworthiness compliance can be demonstrated.
