In what would be good news for both passengers and the crew members of the Pakistan International Airlines (PIA), the airline just launched a Digital Crew app for its crew members. This app packs lots of great features for the cockpit crew of the airline. The app is intended to work as an automated cabin crew flight observation log and information hub.
This app is a big relief for the crew members for the Pakistan International Airlines it cuts down on a number of resources needed to log in their flying hours. The crew members had to carry around large amounts of luggage to be able to log in their flying hours. With the new app, however, all that they will need is a smartphone or tablet with the Digital Crew app installed to log in their flying hours.
That is not the only benefit of the app. It also has features that will allow the crew members carry out other tasks such as filling technical manuals and rosters besides allowing them to receive both online and offline technical support directly to their devices. Owing to the deep integration between the app and the system, the app will allow the crew members to receive and deliver information on a quickly manner. The app even has the capability to allow the crew members to make calculations on the efficiency allowances and the fuel costs.
The Chief Information Officer of the Pakistan International Airlines, Azhar Nawaz, headed the launch of the Digital Crew app. The app is one of the ways in which the company is streamlining its services especially when it comes to routine tasks such as the ones the app can now handle.
The focus is placed squarely on making the firm completely paperless in the coming years. This step will not only make the firm better at its services, it will save on the time and money that is spent on routine tasks. Even better is the knowledge that the company will be reducing on the use of paper which is good for the environment.
