Vistara partners with ULTRAMAIN ELB for paperless ops
Indian carrier Vistara announced it will deploy an e-tech logbook solution and go paperless in its operations using ULTRAMAIN ELB technology. ULTRAMAIN ELB will fully replace aircraft paper technical logs, cabin logs, journey logs, damage logs, and fuelling logs providing a validated electronic Certificate of Release to Service (e-CRS) on flights operated by Vistara.

Currently in the airborne proving stage, the ELB application will be used by Flight Crew, Cabin Crew, and Engineers on iOS devices to provide integrated workflows with Vistara’s maintenance and operational systems. The airline is seeking necessary approvals from relevant authorities before fully integrating this solution across its operations. Once implemented, ULTRAMAIN ELB will enable accurate, real-time global operational visibility of the Vistara fleet resulting in more efficient maintenance, higher dispatch reliability, and increased aircraft utilisation.

“Vistara remains committed towards constantly improving operational efficiency across processes through automation and we’ve been investing in right technologies to achieve this goal. We are delighted to partner with Ultramain Systems, which will provide the first Electronic Logbook to seek operational approval to operate a fully electronic Technical and Cabin Logbook in India. Ultramain ELB will be integrated with various live processes like AMOS, ACARS, and ARMS for seamless operations. This application, with its completeness and ease of use, is one step towards building enterprise application integration while also focussing on sustainable operations,” said Sisira Kanta Dash, Senior Vice President – Engineering & Maintenance, Vistara.
