Etihad Airways, the highly prestigious five star-airline from Abu Dhabi, has selected Jeppesen for crew planning and fatigue risk management functionality. The agreement includes Jeppesen Crew Pairing, Jeppesen Crew Rostering, Jeppesen Crew Bid and usage of the Boeing Alertness Model (BAM). BAM will be used in real-time with the crew planning optimizers to reduce and distribute fatigue risk as crew schedules are being constructed. Peter Watson, Account Director at Jeppesen comments:
"We are thrilled by Etihad now joining in as a crew solution customer. After a period of demonstrating the value of Jeppesen Crew Pairing, Rostering and BAM in a very detailed proof-of-concept, we are excited to now enter into the implementation phase. We hope to have Etihad up and flying the new improved crew rosters soon and look forward to serving them for many years to come."
“By adopting Jeppesen’s crew solutions, we are confident that we will be able to respond and adapt quickly to the ever-changing airline factors and constraints within our operations,” said Rick Allen, Senior Vice President Operations, Etihad Airways. “Our crew team will also appreciate that their preferences are considered as we develop crew schedules, as we will now be able to publish crew schedules farther in advance.”
