Air Arabia is now optimising its flight planning with Lido/Flight from Lufthansa Systems (LSY) and has also implemented the system within its affiliates Air Arabia Maroc and Air Arabia Egypt.
Lido/Flight calculates optimal flight routes based on various factors and can reduce fuel costs by up to five percent, says LSY. The IT provider has successfully implemented the flight planning solution as well as the additional modules Airline Operations Support (AOS) and Inflight Monitor (IFM).
“I am very proud that Air Arabia has joined the growing circle of Lido/Flight users. The benefits of this powerful solution convinced many Middle Eastern airlines making Lido/Flight the leading flight planning solution in the region with a market share of around 35%,” said Stefan Auerbach, senior vice president airline solutions at Lufthansa Systems.
