Loganair has chosen to outsource the management of flight operations manuals to Vistair, which will replace the airline’s in-house operation by providing document management, operational manual updates, and delivery to print, web, and electronic flight bag (EFB) platforms.
According to Steve White, Loganair’s manager of flight support, “In our 50th anniversary year, we examined the global market to provide for our technical manuals requirements. The result of that process was the decision to appoint Vistair, as the clear market leader.”
The Vistair contract will cover Loganair‘s fleet Saab 340s, de Havilland Twin Otters and Britten-Norman Islanders, in addition to wholly-owned subsidiary Suckling Airways’ Dornier 328 fleet.
Ian Herbert, managing director of Vistair, commented, “While our growing customer list includes many of the world’s biggest airlines, like British Airways and Emirates, we are always thrilled to work with regional operators, like Loganair, who provide crucial services for remoter regions.
“The airline industry is so often seen solely in terms of global routes, but airlines like Loganair are crucial to the economic prospects of peripheral and remoter regions of the world,” Herbert added.
