Barcelona, Spain – December 11, 2023– Vueling Airlines, one of the main low-cost airlines in Europe and a key player in connections with Spain, has selected Ultramain Systems market leading electronic logbook software. ULTRAMAIN ELB fully replaces the aircraft paper technical log, cabin log, journey log and fueling logs providing a validated electronic Certificate of Release to Service (e-CRS).
Upon implementation, Vueling’s Flight Crews will operate ULTRAMAIN ELB for Windows on mounted EFBs, while Mechanics and Cabin crew will use the iOS version on iPad. The iOS and Windows applications are interoperable linking to a common Ground System. Vueling will realize an abundance of benefits upon implementation of ULTRAMAIN ELB, including real-time, comprehensive operational visibility for their fleet of over 120 Airbus aircraft. This will lead to enhanced dispatch reliability, reduced operational disruptions, shorter defect lifecycle time, and reductions in component management costs.
According to Marc Espuga, Head of Fleet Technical Management, “Vueling was born digital, so our partnership with ULTRAMAIN ELB perfectly matches our vision of becoming a more efficient and sustainable airline. The fact that we can now handle several documents digitally is both time-saving and much more aligned with our sustainability goals. With real-time data management, we can achieve a paperless aircraft, which helps to streamline our operations and reduce the weight of the aircraft and therefore fuel consumption and emissions, and also reduce waste”.
“We are thrilled to extend a warm welcome to Vueling as part of the ULTRAMAIN ELB family, and we are equally excited to broaden our customer reach into Spain. We are enthusiastic about supporting Vueling in their commitment to sustainability and reduction of environmental impacts. Use of ULTRAMAIN ELB has successfully eliminated paper on more than 2 million sectors flown by our customer airlines, and we eagerly anticipate Vueling realizing these benefits,” said Mark McCausland – President and CEO of Ultramain Systems.
