KLM to adopt digital flight bag tech from AvioVision

KLM has signed a deal with Belgian software company AvioVision that will facilitate the adoption of digital flight bag technology for the airline’s flight crew via the AvioBook “e-briefing” application. The deal will see AvioVision grow by 50%.

Kris Van den Bergh, CEO of AvioVision, said: “We offer a ‘digital flight folder’ whereby all relevant flight information is neatly presented in user-friendly modules on a tablet. As such, the pilot will have the most current flight. Overall, a major airline like KLM can save about 30,000 pages of paper per day.”

Van den Bergh added: “During flight AvioBook also collects information, such as fuel consumption, the duration of the flight and any changes along the way. This information is then quickly made available to the operations office of the airline after landing, all while pilots were previously required to complete a report on paper after each flight.”

KLM plans to start testing the sofware in mid-October. For the airline this project is part of a larger initiative in the field of optimization of work processes for pilots and operational support staff, which will bring large efficiency gains and consequent cost savings.
