Norwegian selects navAero for 737 electronic flight bag

13th March 2009 - 14:15 GMT | by The Shephard News Team


navAero has announced today that the t•Bag C22 electronic flight bag (EFB) system has been chosen by Norwegian Air Shuttle for fleet-wide deployment on the airline’s Boeing 737NGs.

The contract includes cross-connected dual t•Bag C22 EFB systems with the navAero t•Pad 2000 display. The systems will also feature the navAero-designed UMTS/HSDPA – 3G cellular modem module for on-ground data transfer, ARINC 429 connectivity and custom software that enables use of airport moving map applications on a Class 2 EFB.

“After a thorough evaluation, we have concluded that no competing Class 2 EFB system available on the market with an EASA approved STC provides such flexibility, high performance and technical content at such an affordable price as the navAero t•Bag C22 EFB,” stated Ole Christian Melhus, EFB project manager and deputy director of flight operations with Norwegian. “We are very pleased to be one of the first airlines in Europe to receive an operational approval for use of a Class 2 EFB system in all phases of flight. This is in line with our long term strategic IT development process in optimising and assuring operational control within our expanding operation.”

The navAero contract covers a fleet wide deployment of Norwegian’s current 40 737s, with options for an additional 42 aircraft currently on order. The deployment of the navAero EFB platform has already begun and will be completed during 2009. 

“This contract is a major breakthrough where we have shown that our t•Bag C22 Electronic Flight Bag system is not only suitable for the retrofit market, but is also a future-proof platform that provides an appropriate, effective and high-tech environment for new production aircraft,” said Knut Aabo, navAero vice-president of sales & marketing.
