Installation of the EFB systems will begin with provisions in mid-2012 and full implementation by the end of 2013.“The navAero solution fully meets our expectations.

“Over the past months, navAero worked closely with Air France to document and demonstrate our technology as to how our offerings met the very specific needs and requirements of their EFB program,” declared navAero Vice President Sales and Marketing, Knut Aabo. “We are proud to have finalized our contract negotiations with Air France. We are delighted to add them to our roster of customers and look forward working with Air France in the implementation of their advanced EFB initiative.”
