Etihad selects EFB for five new Boeing 777-300ERs.


Boeing (NYSE:BA) and Etihad Airways have announced the installation of Boeing's Class 3 Electronic Flight Bag (EFB) on five new 777-300ERs being delivered in the first half of 2006.

Etihad has also selected a Boeing aircraft maintenance system, Airplane Health Management (AHM), to monitor the in-flight performance of the same aircraft. The EFBs will be installed on the 777s beginning in 2007. Using software developed by Boeing and its Jeppesen subsidiary, and hardware from Astronautics Corp of America, the Boeing EFB digitally delivers charts and manuals that pilots need to fly an aircraft.

No financial details have been disclosed.
