Aeroflot to Provide Cabin Crew with iPads

Travel News Asia Videos Podcasts Latest Travel News Asia Thursday, 20 November 2014

Aeroflot has become the first airline in the Commonwealth of Independent States (CIS) to digitize its crew by providing SITAs CrewTablet to enhance inflight service to its 20 million passengers.

Starting in the last quarter of 2014, Aeroflot will work with SITA to equip cabin crew with 500 iPad minis, with a further expansion to 1,200 tablets.

The rollout follows the successful conclusion of a five-month trial with 30 crew members in which the tablets received nearly a 90% satisfaction rating on both technology and usability.

Aeroflots CrewTablets enable its cabin crew to access passenger and operational data inflight, improving onboard operations and enhancing service to passengers. In addition, with the use of digital forms and reports, CrewTablet helps Aeroflot reduce operational costs and back-office administrative tasks and generate fuel savings by decreasing the weight of traditional paper reports and manuals carried onboard.

Dave Bakker, SITA President, Europe, said, Aeroflot is one of the innovators and the first in Russia to use SITA CrewTablet technology to become more efficient in-flight. Aeroflot selected CrewTablet because SITA has developed a robust, cutting-edge mobile solution fully integrated into its IT infrastructure. We are already working closely with Aeroflot to connect these tablets to an in-cabin wireless service to enable live communication while the plane is in the air. Its all part of SITAs wider e-Aircraft concept, which is set to revolutionize how an aircraft integrates with the airlines ground operations.
