New customer presents successful project at EFB Users Forum in Hawaii
Lufthansa Systems today announced that Hawaiian Airlines has become the latest customer for its Windows-based Lido/eRouteManual navigation solution. Lido/eRouteManual provides electronic navigation charts for all flight phases. From 2017, the entire Hawaiian Airlines fleet will navigate using Lido/eRouteManual.
Each year, around 570 million passengers fly on planes based on navigation charts from Lufthansa Systems. Airlines around the world use Lido/Navigation solutions. Lido/eRouteManual has already been deployed by more than 50 airlines worldwide. The application for Windows-based systems comprises navigation charts for take-off and landing procedures as well as route charts including all important route information like altitude and airport data. These charts are generated directly from the Lido navigation database, which includes worldwide aeronautical information and topographical data. The app’s Lido/AMM (Airport Moving Map) module, which Hawaiian Airlines will roll out in a second step in 2017, provides precise airport charts.
Thanks to wireless data updating via the Mobile Updater pilots are no longer tied to fixed updating processes. Instead, they can update the digital navigation charts anytime and anywhere. This saves time and allows pilots maximum flexibility, because an Internet connection is all they need to update.
“We are proud to have gained this important new customer in North America and look forward to many years of cooperation with Hawaiian Airlines,” said Michael Schmidtborn, Vice President Sales & Services North America at Lufthansa Systems.
Hawaiian Airlines will present the successful project this week at the EFB Users Forum in Hawaii. Experts from Lufthansa Systems will also be at the conference. “We are giving the attendees an exclusive preview of the new release of Lido/eRouteManual, which will be officially launched at the end of the year,” revealed Igor Dimnik, Director Products at Lufthansa Systems.
The EFB Users Forum takes place twice a year and is one of the most important events in the EFB industry. At the Forum, providers and avionics manufacturers demonstrate their latest developments and discuss the technical and operational trends surrounding the Electronic Flight Bag with airline representatives.
