The International Air Transport Association (IATA) has announced that Emirates Airline is the launch customer for the IATA Dangerous Goods Regulations (DGR) for Electronic Flight Bags (eFB).

This 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, said Nick Careen, IATA’s senior vice president, airport, passenger, cargo and security. “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.” 

Captain Hassan Alhammadi, Emirates Senior Vice President, Flight Operations Technical added:  “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.”
