Aer Lingus adopts multilateral eAWB agreement

IRISH airline Aer Lingus is the latest carrier to adopt the multilateral eAWB agreement.
The carrier describes it as a key milestone in the industry move towards the introduction of electronic airwaybills (eAWBs).
There are usually more than 30 paper documents required to complete a shipment, states Peter O’Neill, Aer Lingus’ director of cargo. “The eAWB will bring our customers a faster, more reliable service and allow us to keep costs to a minimum in a competitive market,” he adds.
Having electronic transfer of data is a complex undertaking as the information is used by every part of the delivery chain with implications for international security, customs, freight forwarders and hauliers across the globe, he notes.
Initially, the project will centre on Aer Lingus’ movements in and out of its Dublin Airport hub, but will roll out to all Aer Lingus’ major cargo destinations over time.
