Boeing has entered a ten-year agreement with Frontier Airlines to implement a range of crew, flight-planning and operations tools to enhance efficiency for the airline, Boeing reported on Thursday.
Boeing’s Jeppesen product range will provide digital solutions that deliver cost savings across regional and international routes, enhance airline crew-planning processes and increase operational reliability.
“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,” said Brad Lambert, vice president of Flight Operations for Frontier Airlines.
Under the agreement, Frontier Airlines will leverage a new Jeppesen digital solutions suite that provides day-of-operations decision-support tools, including flight-planning and scheduling services, crew management, tail assignment and operations-control tools.
“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,” Lambert added.
“Boeing’s analytics-powered tools [will] maximize 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.”
