July 15, 2014: Jeppesen, a part of Boeing Commercial Aviation Services, teamed with Cargolux Airlines, a leading European all-cargo carrier, to help the airline recently gain authorization from the civil aviation authority in Luxembourg to operate in a paperless environment. Cargolux has removed paper operations manuals, airport terminal charts and performance charts for its Boeing 747-400F and 747-8F freighter aircraft by integrating Jeppesen electronic flight bag (EFB) software and data used with Boeing EFB hardware.

Cargolux has also upgraded its Boeing class 3 installed EFB services to include in-flight Jeppesen data connectivity. This capability enhances operational efficiency for the airline and allows flight dispatch teams to send critical information such as graphical weather data directly to the EFB through a satellite communications link.

"The approval of our paperless operations and the 747-8F EFB in-flight data connectivity is a testament to the close teamwork between Cargolux, Jeppesen and Boeing, using technology to add value and efficiency to our operation," said Sten Rossby, chief technical pilot, Cargolux Airlines.

Cargolux continues its digital transformation with the recent implementation of the Boeing Electronic Flight Folder application to further replace paper content in its operation. Critical data such as operational flight plans, NOTAM data and other pilot briefing material is now delivered digitally. The removal of paper content significantly reduces weight for the airline and results in improved fuel consumption and lower costs across airline operations.

"Transitioning to digital flight information is a major advancement that reduces pilot workload and increases operational efficiency," said Tim Huegel, director, Jeppesen Aviation Portfolio Management. "This project is truly a team effort and we congratulate Cargolux Airlines on achieving this authorization and we look forward to continued coordination to further advance their digital transformation on the ground and in the air."

Jeppesen installed and mobile EFB software and data solutions help operators to streamline operations and increase situational awareness. With the removal of paper flight materials, pilots are able to focus on other critical aspects of the flight preparation process, as the need to file revisions by hand is eliminated with the use of digital data.
