Iberia to use Lufthansa’s Lido navigation system solutions
Madrid, August 28, 2014 (STAT):-Iberia, Spain’s largest airline, will use its Lido aeronautical solutions for flight operations. The airline has opted for the paper Lido/RouteManual navigation charts after which they will migrate entirely to the electronic Lido/iRouteManual and Lido/Enroute iPad apps. This means Iberia will in the near future be flying with a paperless cockpit, subject to approval by the Spanish regulatory authorities. The state-of-the-art IT solution will enable Iberia to benefit from efficient route planning, cost reductions and fuel savings. Lido/iRouteManual includes electronic navigation charts for take-off and landing procedures as well as airport and route charts. The charts are based directly on the Lido navigation database and contain all important route information including altitude and airport data. They display true-to-scale geographic information such as terrain features and rivers. The navigation charts' clear color-coding and self-explanatory symbols support visual thinking. Layout, colors and symbols are identical in the charts' paper and electronic versions, making it easier for pilots to migrate to Lido/eRouteManual. The Lido/Routemanaul and Lido/iRouteManual app are highly user-friendly and intuitive to use and operate. In addition, pilots can determine the desired level of detail on the charts themselves, so they always have all relevant information at a glance. The electronic navigation charts will also offer the airline faster updates and more flexible flight preparations. The latest briefing charts can now be downloaded to the pilots’ iPads instead of having to be printed out and distributed to each cockpit. The paperless version is also lighter, saves fuel and is more ecological.
