TUIfly Nordic will also integrate their operational document browser software on the EFB. This is part of a proprietary solution for the Windows PC, Mac OSX, and iPhone/iPad platforms used by flight crews to have offline access and stay up to date with company manuals, briefs, and operational notices.The TUIfly EFB program will be launched with the navAero systems being first deployed in one B737 and one B767 aircraft."After a thorough evaluation, we have concluded that no competing EFB Class 2 system matches the performance, connectivity and affordability provided by navAero," says Johan Gauermann, director of flight operations, TUIfly Nordic. "While there are many EFB vendors in the market, navAero's EFB solution offers the best cost/performance rate. We are pleased be in the technology forefront, here in Europe, to soon be able to deploy Class 2 EFBs into revenue operations."TUIfly Nordic is the largest charter company in Sweden, with more than one million holiday travelers annually.
