China Eastern Airlines recently received authorization from the Civil Aviation Administration of China to operate in a fully digital capacity, using Jeppesen FliteDeck Pro as part of its electronic flight bag (EFB) solution. Jeppesen, a Boeing company, teamed with China Eastern to gain the milestone authorization, as China Eastern is the first airline in China to achieve paperless operating status.

“Using Jeppesen FliteDeck Pro for charting and navigation with our international operations and our domestic NAIP charting data for flights within China provides the foundation for gaining this landmark clearance from the Civil Aviation Administration of China,” said Mr. Hou Jianjun, managing director, China Eastern Airlines AOC. 

“Teaming with China Eastern to achieve paperless operations takes into account the innovative technical advances with EFB and navigation services established by both companies to make this possible,” said Gardiner Porter, Jeppesen managing director & general manager, APAC. “

Jeppesen FliteDeck Pro helps airlines streamline the delivery of flight information and establish paperless flight deck operations. Flight information, including worldwide navigation charts is delivered to Jeppesen FliteDeck Pro through the JDM Pro enterprise solution.
