The founders of travel insurance start-up Flightsurance, Dr. Jens Ortgiese and Zoltan Kastner, have sold their shares to 2e Systems, making 2e Systems the largest shareholder in the company.
On October 26th 2012, 2e Systems received notification that JetBlue Airways were preparing for potential Irregular Operations due to a large storm that was making its way up the East coast of the U.S., later called Sandy. This storm was the first since the implementation of the latest upgrade to the eeCrewConnect platform. The customer, JetBlue, is a major US carrier with over 180 aircraft, 75 international destinations and over 15,000 inflight crew members. For a carrier of this size, it is a logistical challenge to contact each and every crew member related to schedule changes, cancellation and crew member repositioning.
Helvetic Airways has boosted its operational efficiency with a new online check-in solution, eeDepart. The system went online on the 8th of August 2012. The carrier now provides Helvetic passengers the ability to check-in online prior to departure.
2e Systems' multi-host DCS check-in solution will communicate with departure control systems AxsControl and Codeco in the Airline's operated airports of Zurich, Bern, Geneva, Rostock, Cardiff and Bristol.
