Ethiopian Airlines Group has introduced Lufthansa Systems’ Lido/Flight 4D solution to its flight planning system, as part of a five-year contract.
“We are pleased to further cement our collaboration with Lufthansa Systems by upgrading our flight planning system to Lido/Flight 4D, having used the Lido Flight Planning Service Lido/FPLS for the last five years. Lido/Flight 4D is one of the most effective flight planning solutions worldwide and has been rewarding in augmenting our efforts to optimise flight planning and control endeavours in our expanding service and latest technology acquisition. With the introduction of Lido/Flight 4D, we are aiming to further optimise our routings and flight planning processes, thereby reaping benefits in terms of reduced flying time and fuel consumption,” said Tewolde GebreMariam, Group chief executive officer at Ethiopian Airlines.
The core features of Lido/Flight 4D are its integrated and continually updated aeronautical database and the so-called optimiser. Lido/Flight 4D calculates the most suitable route for each flight based on all flight-related data, weather conditions and the current airspace situation including any restrictions.
