ANA to become the world's first airline to supply all cabin attendants with iPads

All Nippon Airways (ANA) confirmed it will become the first airline in the world to supply all of its cabin attendants with iPads. The move to supply the company's roughly 6000 cabin attendants with iPads is aimed at enabling the airline to realise its strategic goals of further improving business efficiency. The use of iPads instead of traditional paper training manuals will reduce printing and distribution costs, and increase the ease and reduce the costs related to updating the manual. Approximately 700 cabin attendants will begin trialing the iPad from Oct-2011 before full roll out in Apr-2012. [more - original PR]
