Boeing’s services business has renewed its partnership with Korean Air and its affiliate Jin Air in the areas of pilot training and digital solutions.
Korean Air signed a 10-year agreement with Boeing for digital navigation services, as well as electronic flight bag (EFB) solutions offered by Boeing subsidiary Jeppesen. The Jeppesen FliteDeck Pro EFB solution will offer pilots digital charting and navigation information.
The partnership was inked on the sidelines of this year’s Seoul ADEX, and sees Korean Air and Jin Air renewing their contracts for pilot training services. The five-year agreement covers both carriers’ Boeing fleet, such as the Boeing 737s, 777s and 787s.
Boeing Global Services did not indicate the value of these contracts.
Late September, the business unit clinched nearly $50 million worth of orders and contracts from Asia Pacific carriers, primarily for the digital products.
It has forecast that the Asia Pacific commercial aviation services market will grow by 5% per annum over the next twenty years and estimates the sector to be worth $3.4 billion by 2038.
