Azores Airlines already flies with the Electronic Flight Bag

The technological leap that the airline has just taken won’t be noticed by passengers or those who don’t deal directly with the flight area. But the fact is that at the end of each year, Azores Airlines will have removed around 51kg of paper manuals from its airplanes; it will have achieved a reduction in…
