Indian carrier Jet Airways signed a five-year electronic flight bag (EFB) agreement with Boeing subsidiary Jeppesen, of Englewood, Colo., the companies said Thursday. The agreement provides Jeppesen systems for Jet Airways and its subsidiary carriers Jetlite and Jetkonnect, and includes Jeppesen FliteDeck Pro class 2 EFB services with an enroute situational awareness application, tailored digital charting services and NavData navigational information.

Jeppesen’s tailored airway manual charts for digital navigation are provided for Jet Airways in the agreement, through Web-based e-Link tailored charting services, presented in a Windows operating environment.

“We held productive meetings with the Directorate General Civil Aviation (DGCA) authority of India to implement our FliteDeck Pro EFB class 2 services with Jet Airways, which also clears us to provide similar options for other commercial carriers of India,” said Thomas Wede, Jeppesen senior vice president and general manager, Aviation. “We are pleased to continue our relationship with Jet Airways and we look forward to helping them operate more efficiently through enhanced digital navigation and operations solutions.”
