Emirates Airline Signs Multi-Year Subscription

Dubai, UAE, 28 November 2017 (Geneva) –  The International Air Transport Association (IATA) announced that Emirates Airline is the launch customer for the IATA Dangerous Goods Regulations (DGR) for Electronic Flight Bags (eFB). This important innovation brings the IATA DGR into the cockpit where flight crew make important pre- and in-flight safety decisions.

“For almost 60 years IATA's DGR has been helping the industry safely transport air cargo. The DGR for eFB places the most comprehensive resource on the carriage of dangerous goods into the cockpit in a format that will assist the flight deck crew in making timely operational safety checks and decisions,” said Nick Careen, IATA's Senior Vice President, Airport, Passenger, Cargo and Security.

“Safety is a number one priority at Emirates and we are constantly exploring innovative ways to provide our flight deck crew with easy access to crucial information pertaining to flight safety. With the IATA DGR for eFB, the flight deck crew have efficient and easy access to the most up to date regulatory information,” said Captain Hassan Alhammadi, Emirates Senior Vice President, Flight Operations Technical.

The IATA DGR suite of products tracks the latest developments in evolving regulations for the safe carriage of air cargo. The industry safely carries some 50 million tonnes of cargo annually with a value of $6.4 trillion. All cargo shipments must comply with stringent global standards—from dry ice and lithium batteries to the most complex of articles or substances. The DGR is referenced across the air cargo supply chain.  Working closely with governments and the International Civil Aviation Organization (ICAO), IATA ensures the DGR reflects the most up-to-date regulations. It is available in formats tailored to different areas of the supply chain.
