Boeing has signed a new long-term agreement with North American low-cost carrier Frontier Airlines to provide digital solutions from its Jeppesen product range.

As part of this ten-year contract, Boeing will provide various crew, flight-planning, and operations tools to the carrier.

The digital solutions will streamline crew-planning processes, enhance the airline’s operational efficiency and reliability, as well as reduce costs across regional and international routes.

Frontier Airlines flight operation vice-president Brad Lambert said: “We are fully confident that these robust Jeppesen flight-planning and operational tools will bring tremendous benefit to Frontier’s operations from day one following implementation.

“From maintenance and operational planning to day-of and irregular operations, the Jeppesen automation and crew-management tools will complement our low-cost business model while contributing to our system reliability and efficiency.”

The carrier will also leverage solutions, including flight-planning and scheduling services and crew management, tail assignment and operations-control tools.

These will help the airline in day of operations and support decision-making.

Boeing Global Services president and CEO Ted Colbert said: “As commercial aviation emerges from the Covid-19 pandemic, Frontier Airlines is poised to continue its exceptional growth, utilising Boeing’s analytics-powered tools to maximise performance and reduce costs during this critical moment for our industry.

Frontier Airlines operates more than 100 aircraft across the US, the Caribbean and Mexico.

The carrier has already placed orders for 160 new aircraft.
