Comparable to moves made by other major global airlines, Gulf Air, the leading air carrier of the Kingdom of Bahrain, is adopting an iPad-based electronic flight bag system for pilots.

The system is being made possible through collaboration with telecommunications provider VIVA Bahrain.

The initiative will result in the airline acquiring 355 iPad devices as part of Gulf Air’s program.

“We are proud of our existing strategic relationship with VIVA Bahrain and pleased to extend this partnership to include the provision of iPad devices as part of Gulf Air’s Electronic Flight Bag project," says Gulf Air Acting Chief Executive Officer, Maher Salman AlMusallam. "This is an essential component of our ongoing commitment to all new technology that provides integrated solutions for managing information in the air and on the ground.”

From national and foreign military organizations, to global airline carriers, Apple's iPad remains the go-to tablets for whenever Electronic Flight Bags are needed.
