[Avionics Today July 15, 2014] All-cargo European carrier Cargolux Airlines has received approval from the civil aviation authority in Luxembourg to begin transitioning from paper-based manuals to Electronic Flight Bags (EFBs). The cargo airline worked with Jeppesen to obtain the approval, and will be integrating Jeppesen EFB software and data on Boeing
EFBs for its fleet of 747-400s and 747-8s. Cargolux is also looking to use EFBs to obtain real-time graphical weather data with a satellite communications link.
“The approval of our paperless operations and the 747-8F EFB in-flight data connectivity is a testament to the close teamwork between Cargolux, Jeppesen and Boeing, using technology to add value and efficiency to our operation,” said Sten Rossby, chief technical pilot, Cargolux Airlines.
