On October 11 2e Systems released the latest version of the eeCrewConnect® mobile app for JetBlue, known as JETCRW. The new release makes use of geofencing technology to support JetBlue's "positive check-in" procedure, which requires all crew members to check in for duty while physically located at the airport. The app is now the primary system for all JetBlue crew members to check in for duty, with the only alternative being to use phones located in airport crew areas.

This summer has seen more and more airlines experiencing challenges with complex and often antiquated IT systems. In turn, more and more passengers and crew members have been experiencing frustration with cancelled and delayed flights.
According to Mark Dunkerley, CEO of Hawaiian Airlines, such outages are usually minor and short-lived, however the resulting displacement of crew can have long-term effects on an airline’s operations.
In June 2016 Swiss International Air Lines completed their migration to a new DCS. To assist the migration, 2e Systems' eeDepart solution was configured in line with the airline's flights migration schedule. The web check-in system would switch to the correct DCS according to each individual flight. This meant no manual intervention was required by Swiss staff, significantly reducing the effort required on their side.
