Britannia Airways Extends Livelink Deployment

Jan 23, 2004


Open Text Corporation, provider of Livelink collaboration and content management software for the enterprise, has announced that Britannia Airways has extended its Livelink deployment to provide PDA and laptop access during flights, giving pilots and cabin crew real-time access to critical flight data on the aircraft. The PDAs have been rolled out to Britannia cabin crew and are used to record and transact in-flight retail purchases and present flight documentation which is downloaded using wireless technology at the bases prior to the flight. The solution builds on Britannia Airway's original Livelink application, a flight briefing system, which provides pre-flight data, such as passenger manifests, staff schedules, and security information. Laptop computers have been rolled out to Britannia's pilots and, using Livelink, the airline has also been able to replace traditional paper-based manuals, and pilot notices, reducing briefing times to ensure 'on time' flight departures, and providing an audit trail.
