RFID Technology helps Air Tahiti Nui speed up inspections

Air Tahiti Nui is taking safety seriously with a new hi-tech way of cutting down inspection times for lifejackets on its Airbus A340-300 aircraft.  The airline has installed RFID tags on the life vests across the entire fleet of A340-300's using EAM RFID's TagControl Solution. 

The RFID technology will allow the airline to cut down inspection times from 5 hours to just 10 minutes, it will also enable the carrier to improve the traceability of cabin safety equipment and increase the rapidity of inspections - previously every three months, but now it can be done monthly, making it even safer!
