Singapore Airlines to start using MobileFirst for iOS

Singapore Airlines (SIA) have selected MobileFirst for iOS enterprise apps. MobileFirst for iOS is the result of a collaboration between IBM and Apple on industry-specific enterprise applications.

From mid-June this year, SIA pilots will have access to Fly Now and Roster for iPad, as part of a suite of apps installed on company-issued iPads. The use of the apps are expected to enhance pilot productivity by digitizing manual processes related to airline operations and regulations, said IBM in a statement.

Fly Now provides location for flight-related information, and actions such as the flight plan, pilot check-in, information related to a specific aircraft, collaboration with other crew members, access to technical and operational circulars and historical reports.

Roster gives a 60-day view of flights assigned to a pilot, as well as an alert-based tracking of the pilot’s upcoming expirations for visas, passports and other flying certifications.
