Aerospace Software Developments congratulates Etihad Airways on implementing RFIDAeroCheck to track and manage life vests on board 80 of its aircraft. The airline is in the process of installing it on its entire fleet. RFIDAeroCheck will allow Etihad Airways to complete a quick and accurate check for both the presence and expiry of life vests in the cabin by simply walking down the aisle using an RFID-enabled handheld device. The operational benefits are significant with positive impacts on the efficiency of checks, reliability of gathered information and management of life vests in total.
“Utilizing the RFID solution from ASD helped us getting the full picture of our life vest configuration and improving our processes. While getting more accurate and detailed reports at the end of the checks, the same is achieved by requiring significant less time.”
– RFID Project Manager, Etihad Airways
