Jeppesen has signed a new five-year flight planning service deal with Jazeera Airways.
Jazeera will integrate Jeppesen JetPlanner services into operation to enhance flight planning efficiency. JetPlanner is a Windows-based user interface that provides a complete end-to-end flight planning and dispatch solution. The Jeppesen JetPlan engine uses a fuel, time and cost performance index to generate optimised routes and efficient flight plans, leading to lower operating costs.
“Developing optimised flight plans that help to reduce fuel consumption based on efficient routing is a critical operational objective,” said Abdulla Al-Hudaid, chief operating officer, Jazeera Airways. “Integrating Jeppesen JetPlanner services will enable us to operate our flight planning procedures more efficiently throughout our network which includes the Middle East’s most popular destinations.”
Jeppesen JetPlanner will provide Jazeera Airways with a simplified and consolidated access to flight data through an intuitive user interface. The flight planning solution includes multiple-scenario analysis to optimise fuel consumption and route times, resulting in lower operational costs. The ability to tailor customer-specific aircraft performance models will help to further increase the flight planning efficiency for Jazeera Airways.
