EAGLE, ID – July 24, 2020. Eastern Airlines has secured a multi-year contract with eTT Aviation for its SkedFlex Flight and Crew Management System – providing Eastern the next generation of software solutions to manage their complex operations more efficiently and profitably.
The SkedFlex suite of tools provides airlines the ability to schedule and manage flights, crewmembers, and aircraft in a flexible, efficient, and visual manner. Coupled with its proprietary rules engines, SkedFlex helps ensure control and regulatory compliance with complex flight and duty limitations and rest requirements, all while providing employees a better quality of life — a critical factor in retention, productivity, and satisfaction given the shortage of qualified pilots and competition among air carriers.
“Eastern is proud to join the growing list of airlines supported by eTT and the Skedflex product. We had been looking for a crew and aircraft management system that is innovative, flexible, intuitive, and helped ensure our team succeeded in meeting our vision to operate safely and reliably while working the day to day challenges. eTT has taken the time to get to know us as much as we’ve gotten to know them, and this has been invaluable as they continue to succeed in providing terrific customer support and handling our important requirements without hesitation.”
Steve Harfst – Eastern Airlines President and CEO
