Onur Air Enhances Flight Crew Procedures

Toulouse, France - November 3, 2014 - In an effort to improve efficiency, Onur Air has been approved by the Turkish DGCA for EFB (Electronic Flight Bag) Class II solution based on “FlySmart with Airbus” iPadĀ® on its Airbus fleet. By reducing paper-based materials, this solution allows flight crews to perform on-board tasks more efficiently and more accurately like aircraft performance computation for takeoff and landing, operations manual and navigation charts consultation.

Onur Air, Turkey’s largest private airline, in terms of passenger numbers, has recently been approved to transition to paperless operations. Airbus ProSky, building on Airbus expertise, has guided Onur Air’s safe transition from paper to electronic data. With the support and approval of Airworthiness Authorities, Airbus ProSky has outlined best practices for ground administration, flight crew procedures, and compliance to regulations.

“Airbus ProSky provided bestin-class recommendations for an optimized EFB Implementation, through its thorough and personalized assessment of our current processes and procedures. This enabled National Authorities a smooth operational approval, by demonstrating the compliance with all necessary regulatory steps,” said Teoman Tosun, CEO of Onur Air.

Paul Franck Bijou, CEO of Airbus Prosky, remarked, “Together, with Airbus, we are dedicated to providing the highest-standard services to customers for the EFB Implementation Phase and are delighted to see that Onur Air can, today, fly paperless.”
