Low-cost carrier easyJet is to replace traditional paper technical and cabin logs with a new e-techlog system across its 346 A320 aircraft during 2025.

The airline claims the transition will help it to reduce operational waste, saving over 300,000 sheets of paper from being printed and stored annually.

The e-techlog system, from aviation technology company Ultramain, will streamline maintenance reporting for flight and cabin crews and engineers, enhancing line maintenance productivity and reducing ground delays.

Bolstered by real-time flight and cabin crew reports, this upgrade is expected to decrease maintenance times, increase aircraft availability, and minimise passenger disruptions.

David Morgan, chief operating officer at easyJet, said: “Our continued investment into innovative solutions like the e-techlog means we’ll not only find quicker solutions to defects but by cutting our paper use and the weight on the aircraft, we are also taking another small but important step to reduce our environmental impact too.”

Once fully rolled out, easyJet claims the e-techlog will be run through Ultramain’s software and will be installed on operational iPads accessible to airline personnel on the ground and in the air.

This will enable both crew and engineers to raise and share maintenance issues in real-time whilst on the ground, giving engineers time to order new parts in advance, saving on-ground delays and operational downtime.

Additionally, easyJet states that transitioning to a fully digitised process leaves no room for errors or misinterpretation, because the software will enable engineers to identify problems instantly as they board aircraft thanks to the interactive cabin map feature included with the e-techlog.

Mark McCausland, president and chief executive of Ultramain Systems, said: “By embracing a paperless process for their electronic technical and cabin logbook, easyJet has demonstrated a dedication to excellence and innovation.

“Together, we are paving the way towards a more efficient future in aviation. We are excited to support easyJet as they transition to a more efficient, paperless operation.”

easyJet carried more than 82 million passengers in 2023. The airline operates almost 1,000 routes to more than 155 airports across 35 countries.
