AvioVision has signed a contract with SkyWork Airlines, a growing airline from Switzerland, to equip its fleet with the AVIOBOOK®EFB. SkyWork Airlines will use the AVIOBOOK® to further enhance its efficiency and growth based on the current features and expansion options that the EFB platform provides.

SkyWork Airlines will use Class 1 devices on its Dornier and Bombardier fleet, starting with a basic suite of modules consisting of MAIN, LIBRARY, WEIGHT & BALANCE and PERFORMANCE. In a second phase, this basic set will be expanded with REPORTS, OFP and BRIEFING to yield a completely paperless flight deck environment and integrated airline concept.

“SkyWork Airlines is looking forward to start operating the AVIOBOOK® EFB onboard of our aircraft. Our main goals are to keep safety at the highest levels and to improve the efficiency in workload distribution in the cockpit; we are convinced that AVIOBOOK® will give us a big benefit to fulfill these targets.” says Capt. Reto Greub, Post Holder Flight Operations of SkyWork Airlines.

“AvioVision highly appreciates the opportunity to provide SkyWork’s fleet with a full EFB suite and is excited to work with the skilled and experienced SkyWork Airlines flight operations team. SkyWork Airlines has been a real success story so far and is a young, cutting edge airline operator that will be a great addition to our customer portfolio” says Kris Van den Bergh, CEO of AvioVision. The implementation will start in February 2012.


Founded in 1983, SkyWork Airlines is a young and dynamic airline focusing on the passenger as the center of its services. Currently SkyWork Airlines operates 4 Dornier 328 and 2 Bombardier Dash-8 Q400 aircraft out of Bern, Switzerland to over 11 destinations in winter and 25 in summer. As a testimony to their service level and innovative spirit, SkyWork Airlines has been the first airline to provide iPads to all their passengers in flight.
