Woodrow Bellamy III 

[Avionics Today May 14, 2014] Turkish charter airline Corendon has signed a new five-year contract with Jeppesen to integrate the company's digital navigation and Electronic Flight Bag (EFB) services into its commercial aircraft fleet. 

The airline is looking to eliminate all paper-based flight planning materials from its aircraft to reduce fuel consumption, according to Erhan Bayram, flight operations manager at Corendon Airlines.

“This agreement with Jeppesen will allow us to transition from paper to digital flight information, as we proceed with our EFB authorization process,” said Erhan Bayram, flight operations manager, Corendon Airlines. “Our goal is to eliminate volumes of heavy, paper-based flight information with this shift to EFB services on iPad, which reduces fuel consumption for each flight and increases operational efficiency.”
