Fiji Airways Flies with RFID Technology

07 June 2017

Fiji Airways is integrating radio frequency identification (RFID) to improve in-cabin inspections for onboard emergency equipment such as life vests, life rafts, oxygen bottles, fire extinguishers, extension seat belts, earmuffs, flashlights, survival kits, and oxygen generators across the A330, B737, ATR, and Twin Otter fleet. The airline has completed installation of over 4,000 ultrahigh-frequency RFID tags throughout its entire fleet of 15 aircraft.

(Source: EAM RFID Solutions)(Source: EAM RFID Solutions)The Dubai office of EAM RFID Solutions, a division of EAM Worldwide, is leading the Fiji Airways implementation.

Fiji Airways has been using EAM Worldwide life vests for over 10 years. EAM Worldwide is one of the first to embed RFID tags, leading the market with in-vest implementation since 2009.

To continue with the RFID program, Fiji Airways and EAM RFID Solutions intend to deploy a wider Cyber Physical System (CPS) by tagging other items (including seat covers) and seeking to advance opportunities with additional system integration with engineering maintenance system AMOS.
