September 25, 2019: Low-cost carrier IndiGo has signed an agreement with aerospace company Boeing to integrate Jeppesen Ops Control and Tail Assignment solutions to optimise crew schedule management and manage aircraft more efficiently.

Ops Control will allow IndiGo to proactively manage aircraft flight schedule and crew assignments on the day of operation, while Tail Assignment will improve on time performance, lower fuel and maintenance costs and utilise aircraft more efficiently by analysing operational data.

The announcement was made by Boeing in a press release listing out its orders and agreements with leading Asia-Pacific airlines.

“We continue to establish and grow relationships in this key region of the world, working closely with our Asia-Pacific customers to understand their unique operating requirements. We’re evolving our digital services and parts support to meet our customers’ needs while increasing the efficiency of their operations,” said Stan Deal, president and CEO, Boeing Global Services.

Cargo getting a top priority at IndiGo

Apart from IndiGo, among the orders and agreements are Cathay Pacific and Philippine Airlines that have signed agreements for Boeing 777 Performance Improvement Package 2.0 to support their 777-300ER fleets. This includes a number of recommended aircraft modifications, associated retrofit parts kits and accompanying service bulletins to implement aerodynamic improvements that improve aircraft fuel efficiency and payload/range capability, without requiring the airline to make significant operational policy or procedural changes.

Since the original 777 Performance Improvement Package 1.0 was first offered, 23 participating airlines implementing these recommended modifications have reduced fuel consumption by more than 3.4 billion pounds (515 million gallons) of fuel, translating into more than $1.1 billion in fuel related savings and reduction of carbon dioxide emissions by 9.4 billion pounds.

Shandong Airlines has signed a multi-year agreement to renew Jeppesen NavData services for enhanced operational efficiency.

Shenzhen Airlines has agreed to a multi-year renewal contract for Jeppesen tailored electronic flight information services.

Peach Aviation has achieved a significant operational milestone by being the first Japanese airline to introduce Jeppesen Airport Moving Map capabilities to further streamline paperless operations in the flight deck. J
