Pilots flying with Peach Aviation can now consult Airbus’ flight operational manuals on iPads using the ‘FlySmart with Airbus’ electronic flight bag (EFB) application.
Peach Aviation’s pilots will also be able to compute their aircraft performance calculations with optimised results on any runway of their operational route network. The carrier currently operates fifteen A320 aircraft and will take delivery of an additional five of the type from July 2015.
Shinichi Inoue, representative director and CEO of Peach Aviation, said, “FlySmart with Airbus will allow us to realise optimised operations and to remove paper thus reducing associated costs. We consider this solution as a real asset for our future operations to further improve the quality of our service.”
Peach Aviation will also benefit from APPROVE4Flight, which is provided by Airbus Flight Operations Services Ltd and offers ‘EFB assessment and EFB operational approval assistance.’APPROVE4Flight gives on-site support for the compliance dossier, including an analysis of the existing organisation and processes.
Didier Lux, Airbus’ SVP customer services, stated, “We are delighted to welcome Peach Aviation as a new FlySmart with Airbus customer. We are confident that this agreement will open new perspectives in Japan to further expand the use of Airbus e-Solutions and the services provided by Airbus Flight Operations Services throughout the region.”
