Jeppesen, a part of Boeing Digital Aviation, and Air Malta recently agreed to a three-year charting, NavData and electronic flight bag (EFB) service contract. A long-standing Jeppesen customer, Air Malta will integrate Jeppesen FliteDeck Pro on iPad to streamline access to essential flight information and Jeppesen’s industry-leading navigation data.
Air Malta, the national air carrier of Malta, is in the process of eliminating paper-based materials from their operation and Jeppesen FliteDeck Pro on iPad will help the airline fully transition to digital flight information. The iPad-based solution also helps to reduce pilot workload, increase situational awareness in flight and lower operating costs through reduced fuel consumption, based on weight savings.
“Integrating Jeppesen FliteDeck Pro on iPad is essential for our operations as we continue our process to achieve a fully digital flight information working environment,” said Mark Attard, Technical Pilot, Air Malta. “With automatic updates of essential data and intuitive functionality, FliteDeck Pro provides us with the foundation needed for improved fleet-wide operational efficiency.”
Jeppesen FliteDeck Pro on iPad will provide Air Malta with vector-based terminal charts and data-driven enroute content, which is dynamically rendered on-screen for improved situational awareness in the flight deck. Jeppesen NavData is developed from a comprehensive aviation database, which is composed of more than one million records and is continuously updated from global aviation data sources during each 28-day revision cycle.
“In a marketplace where reduced costs and increased efficiency are vital to success, Jeppesen FliteDeck Pro will help Air Malta achieve their goal of establishing a paperless operating environment,” said Tim Huegel, director, Jeppesen Aviation Portfolio Management. “Air Malta pilots will be able to focus on other essential flight operations, as FliteDeck Pro provides flight information that is ready to use, without time consuming hand revisions of paper charts and operational data.”
Air Malta connects the Maltese Islands with 35 destinations across Europe and the Mediterranean, operating a fleet of Airbus A320/319 aircraft. For more information about the commercial air services provided by Air Malta, please visit www.airmalta.com.
