Low-cost airline easyJet will replace its paper technical and cabin logs with a digitised system from technology company Ultramain as part of its attempts to reduce waste. 

The UK-based company said the digitalisation of its logs could save more than 300,000 sheets of paper from being printed each year, once rolled out across its 346-strong fleet of aircraft by 2025. 

Additionally, the airline is hoping that by bringing the e-techlog system online, its processes will be streamlined with flight and cabin crew reports becoming available in real-time. 

David Morgan, easyJet’s COO, said: “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 rolled out in full, the e-techlog will be installed on iPads given to easyJet ground and air staff, enabling them to share and raise maintenance issues as they come up and allowing ground engineers to prepare a solution ahead of an aircraft’s arrival. 

The system also includes an interactive map feature that will make it easier for engineers to identify an issue when they board an aircraft and minimises the risk of misinterpreting information written down by cabin crew.

Ultramain’s system has become a popular choice for the aviation industry with major airlines including SAS, Vueling, and Norse Atlantic all also signing agreements for use of the technology in the last year. 

Mark McCaulsand, president and CEO of Ultramain, said: “By embracing a paperless process for their electronic technical and cabin logbook, easyJet has demonstrated a dedication to excellence and innovation. 

“Together, we are paving the way towards a more efficient future in aviation.” 

EasyJet’s embrace of the technology continues the airlines investment into digital solutions after it revealed its new Integrated Control Centre at Luton Airport in the UK which will utilise a generative AI tool to support its flight management.
