Vistara partners with Ultramain ELB and is set to become the first Indian airline to introduce an e-tech logbook solution and go paperless in its operations. Ultramain ELB will fully replace aircraft paper technical log, cabin log, journey log, damage log, and fueling log 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 utilization.

Sisira Kanta Dash, Senior Vice President – Engineering & Maintenance, Vistara, mentioned, “Vistara remains committed to constantly improving operational efficiency across processes through automation and we’ve been investing in the 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.”

“As Vistara marches on its Digital Transformational journey, the focus on digital data capture, integration and automation will continue. ULTRAMAIN ELB will help digitize our aircraft paper logs and improve operational effectiveness.” said Vinod Bhat, Chief Information Officer, Vistara.
