easyJet will banish some wasteful practices onboard its fleet of 346 Airbus A320 family aircraft to cut down on paper use and modernize its processes at the same time.  

The low-cost-carrier announced on June 24, 2024, that it will replace paper technical and cabin logs with Ultramain’s e-techlog system to digitalize the process.  

The logs are used by cabin crew, engineers, ground crew and flight crew, and easyJet expects the new system will “save more than 300,000 sheets of paper from being printed and stored every year” while improving efficiency. 

easyJet expects that the new system will also lead to fewer ground delays and lower aircraft maintenance times.  

“Rolling out Ultramain’s state-of-the-art technology across our fleet of aircraft will not only improve the reporting processes for our crew and engineering teams but will also see fewer delays on the ground, which will help further enhance the travel experience for our customers,” David Morgan, Chief Operating Officer at easyJet, said. 

Morgan added: “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, the e-techlog will be run through Ultramain’s software and will be installed on operational iPads accessible to easyJet 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, and in doing so give the engineers ample time to order new parts in advance, saving on-ground delays and operational downtime.
