Lufthansa Systems has announced that Jetstar Asia has opted to deploy its Lido/eRouteManual electronic navigation charts.
The Singapore-based carrier will implement the electronic charts in stages, continuing to rely on the paper charts from Lufthansa Systems until the changeover is complete. This deal extends an existing contract signed in 2007.
Lido/RouteManual includes charts for every phase of a flight, from pushback to landing. Pilots can quickly find their way around the charts thanks to the true-to-scale topographical data. Since the structure and layout of the electronic charts is identical to that of the paper version, pilots can quickly and easily make the transition to Lido/eRouteManual.
“We are delighted that Jetstar Asia has decided to continue and even expand our co-operation. This decision shows that our electronic route charts deliver benefits to an airline’s operations that also pay off in economic terms – regardless of the carrier’s business model,” commented Norbert Müller, senior vice-president sales Asia Pacific at Lufthansa Systems.
