Airline customers of Lido flight planning and navigation solutions meet in Rome | Lufthansa Systems presenting new functions within the Lido product family
Lufthansa Systems is welcoming representatives from 80 airlines from across the globe to the Lido User Group Conference in Rome from May 7 to 9. Over the coming days, the company’s airline IT experts will update around 310 attendees about the latest news and developments in its successful Lido portfolio.
This customer conference will focus on how airlines can further improve the efficiency of their flight operations. With almost 25 years of experience in complex airline processes, Lufthansa Systems is the market leader in many areas of aviation IT, including in flight planning with its Lido/Flight 4D solution. With its "Total Mission Optimization" (TMO) Lido product strategy, Lufthansa Systems is once again leading the way to a future of change. This strategy focuses on the close interplay between flight planning and navigation on the flight deck.
In addition to unveiling Lido Flight Planning Solutions for dispatchers and Lido Pilot Solutions for flight deck crew, the company also presents the latest news from Lido Data Solutions. The coordinated interaction between different areas enables these tried-and-tested Lido solutions to drive innovation for airlines.
“TMO allows us to look at each individual flight as an integrated mission, managed between dispatch and the flight deck,” explained Dr. Bernd Jurisch, Head of Flight & Navigation Products & Solutions at Lufthansa Systems. “We presented the TMO concept for the first time at the Lido User Group Conference 2018, where it received a highly positive reception from our customers. We are looking forward to presenting our initial findings and subsequent developments here. By progressively developing and integrating the planning and navigation processes, we are optimizing flight operations in terms of fuel consumption, flight times and operating efficiency. Dispatchers can calculate the most suitable routes and pilots can fly them in the most efficient way, all while communicating continually with each other. Dynamically updating mission-critical data also increases safety.”
In addition to unveiling the latest product developments and offering related workshops, the conference also features presentations from industry partners. Highlights include Lido and its partner GE Aviation providing insight into the opportunities presented by “Connected FMS”, while Teledyne will give an overview of “Aircraft Interface Devices (AIDs) and Connectivity.” Other partners will also showcase themselves at the Market Place, which provides a forum for partners, product experts and customer representatives from around 80 airlines to have in-depth interactions.
“Total Mission Optimization is not a product. It describes the merger of our Lido portfolio that we are delivering and developing together with the airlines by maintaining an intensive and critical dialog at events such as the Lido User Group Conference,” said Jurisch. “Our aim is to offer the highest levels of quality and user-friendliness. We do this by interconnecting our innovative solutions and continuously developing them in partnership with our customers.”
