CYPRUS – Cyprus Airways announced its transition to a fully paperless cockpit. This shift marks a significant achievement for the airline in its commitment to enhance efficiency and sustainability.
This technological advancement will not only improve operational efficiency and situational awareness in flight but will also reduce fuel consumption based on weight savings.
Commenting on this accomplishment George Mavrocostas, Chief Operations Officer of the airline said, “This milestone is a testament of Cyprus Airways’ ongoing commitment to innovation, environmental sustainability, and operational excellence. Having the best technology and procedures helps our crews make the best decisions to fly more efficiently whilst safeguarding our high standards of safety in flight operations.”
He emphasised, “Our pilots fly some of the world’s most technologically advanced aircraft including our latest fleet addition, the state-of-the-art Airbus A220-300. All airline pilots have long relied on paper navigation charts and manuals which clutter the cockpit with volumes of documents. This project represents a significant step forward for our pilots providing them with one-touch access to up-to-date flight information, charts, maps, and other crucial tools. This initiative is also an investment in our staff as we are equipping them with cutting-edge technologies to operate at the best of their abilities.”
“We extend our gratitude to all our partners for their invaluable support in making this project a reality”, added Mr Mavrocostas.
