Gulf Air Eliminates paper flight materials

Posted 27 October 2015 · Add Comment

Gulf Air recently achieved paperless flight operations, using Jeppesen FliteDeck Pro as its electronic flight bag (EFB) solution. Jeppesen, a part of Boeing Commercial Aviation Services, provides digital navigation and flight information for Gulf Air, delivered through iPad.


“This is a significant achievement and one that will deliver operational benefits, positive environmental impact and cost savings,” said Captain Nasser Al Salmi, Gulf Air chief operating officer. “Equipping Gulf Air’s flying crew with iPad EFBs on-board gives them a paperless way to manage in-flight data further streamlining our operational performance and giving our team greater capabilities and efficiencies. The EFBs help us bring the latest technologies to the cockpit, centralizing information and enhancing our operations.” 

Jeppesen FliteDeck Pro helps to reduce pilot workload and preparation time and provides streamlined access to essential operational and flight information, including Jeppesen’s industry-leading navigation data. Vector-based terminal charts and data-driven enroute content are dynamically rendered on-screen and information is displayed per pilot and operator preference. 

“We are proud to support the transition of Gulf Air’s operations to a fully digital working environment, through use of Jeppesen FliteDeck Pro on iPad as their EFB solution,” said Alex Zakroff, vice president, Jeppesen Navigation Solutions. “Digital navigation solutions provide a wealth of information available at the tap of a finger, which helps to increase situational awareness, improves safety margins and reduces costs to help airlines operate more efficiently in a competitive business landscape.”
