Airbus and Dell OEM Solutions launch Electronic Flight Bag service
Dell OEM Solutions has partnered with Airbus to support A320 Family airliner operators worldwide by providing an end-to-end Electronic Flight Bag (EFB) solution supported by Dell Latitude solutions. Dell laptops, which adhere to strict regulatory standards, will be pre-loaded with FlySmart with Airbus software and installed as Class-2 EFB equipment. This EFB approach eliminates the need to carry paper based flight documentation while digitizing information in a way that supports local specifications. This initial announcement will cover EFB Class-2 solutions for Airbus’ single-aisle aircraft, though the agreement includes scope to extend application to other aircraft types.
