Pilots and Cabin Crew at Ryanair, Buzz, Malta Air and Lauda Europe can import flight data as follows:
- CrewDock (off-line OCR): import your planned roster from CrewDock or the Ryanair eCrew app
This solution is more convenient for the calendar roster app CrewLounge CONNECT and is also available to cabin crew. Read more about the various functions (such as Roster Share, Chat) of CrewLounge CONNECT on the website (here).
Select the eCrewDock OCR interface from the desktop or mobile app Settings - Airline Interface page. Continue reading (here).
- Netline (off-line): download your flying history from the crewroom terminals
Download your historical data from the crewroom terminal as PDF, and import the PDF with CrewLounge PILOTLOG.
Select the Netline/Crewlink interface from the desktop or mobile app Settings - Airline Interface page. Share your PDF with the CrewLounge PILOTLOG desktop or mobile app, or upload your PDF through My CrewLounge (here).
- PilotApp (efb): import your "Verified Flights" email
Pilots can import the company EFB emails straight into CrewLounge PILOTLOG. Follow the instructions indicated below.
Every month, we process thousands of EFB emails for Ryanair pilots. Flight data from the Ryanair PilotApp goes straight into your personal pilot logbook with a few clicks of the button.
Ryanair does not allow the installation of 3rd party apps on the company iPad. Install the CrewLounge PILOTLOG app on your personal device (iOS, Android).
On your personal mobile device, configure the CrewLounge PILOTLOG app as follows:
1) on the Settings - Airline page, select the PilotApp EFB interface for Ryanair, Buzz, Malta Air or Lauda Europe
- fill-out the different settings that come with this interface
Different import methods
You can import your EFB data in 3 different ways!
All methods require internet access. You cannot share your data with CrewLounge PILOTLOG offline. Batch import (multiple files at a time) is not possible, you must share or email the files one-by-one.
Choose the method that is most convenient for you. Here is an overview, the details are outlined further down in this article.
Forward your EFB emails to the dedicated CrewLounge EFB Inbox. This method is fully automatic, no buttons to click in the app!
Read more about the EFB Inbox method below.
Push the EFB data from the company iPad to your personal device via AirDrop (iOS, MacOS) or SnapDrop (Android, Windows PC) and then import the data with the CrewLounge PILOTLOG app on that device.

How does EFB Inbox work?
It couldn't be easier:

- the email subject must contain 'Verified Flights' (or 'Not Verified'), or it can be left blank
- your email is processed within 90 seconds
- you receive an automatic confirmation email
- the flights automatically sync to your CrewLounge PILOTLOG app
Send your EFB emails to the following EFB Inbox:
You can send emails from any email address. However, if the Sender address is different from your CrewLounge AERO account email, you must first insert the Sender address in My CrewLounge - My Profile - Airline Interface - EFB Inbox (login here). On the same page, insert also your 6-letter code in the Employee ID field.
