Boeing has announced a new 10-year agreement with US low-cost carrier Frontier Airlines to implement a range of crew, flight-planning and operations tools.
According to Boeing, these tools will enhance efficiency for the airline, providing fleet-wide cost savings across regional and international routes, enhancing airline crew-planning processes and increasing operational reliability.
Brad Lambert, vice president of Flight Operations for Frontier Airlines commented: “We are fully confident that these robust Jeppesen flight-planning and operational tools will bring tremendous benefit to Frontier’s operations from day one following implementation.
“From maintenance and operational planning to day-of and irregular operations, the Jeppesen automation and crew-management tools will complement our low-cost business model while contributing to our system reliability and efficiency.”
In addition to its digital navigation and charting services from Boeing, Frontier Airlines will use a new Jeppesen digital solutions suite that provides day-of-operations decision-support tools.
“As commercial aviation emerges from the Covid-19 pandemic, Frontier Airlines is poised to continue its exceptional growth, utilising Boeing’s analytics-powered tools to maximise performance and reduce costs during this critical moment for our industry,” said Ted Colbert, president and CEO of Boeing Global Services.
“This is a great example of our partnership with customers like Frontier to turn Boeing’s unparalleled digital expertise into operational bottom-line advantages.”
Headquartered in Denver, Frontier Airlines is committed to “Low Fares Done Right.” The company operates more than 100 aircraft with a route network spanning the US, Caribbean and Mexico.
