transavia.com on its path to lower costs with Lido RouteManual from Lufthansa Systems
transavia.com opts for Lufthansa Systems' navigation charts.
Both companies recently signed a five-year-contract over the implementation and use of Lido RouteManual. With the innovative solution the Dutch low-cost carrier can optimize its flight operations and benefits from the high quality of the navigation charts.
transavia.com s' scheduled network serves 26 destinations from hubs at Amsterdam, Eindhoven and Rotterdam and offers charter services to more than 80 destinations.
"A key factor for our decision is the excellent product and services that Lufthansa Systems offers. Lido RouteManual meets the highest standards of precision and quality. The new charts support visual thought with clear color-coding and self-explanatory symbols and that way enable our pilots to see all relevant information at a glance," explains Matthieu Verdegaal, Director Flight Technical Department from transavia.com.
Lido RouteManual includes graphical representations of take-off and landing procedures as well as true-to-scale geographic information such as terrain features and rivers. The navigation charts are generated directly from a database which is based on worldwide geographical and aeronautical data.
By implementing Lido RouteManual transavia.com takes a first step to significantly reduce the amount of paper in the cockpit. The airline plans to introduce the so-called two-paper concept consisting of the Airport Facility Chart (AFC) with the Airport Ground Chart (AGC) on its back, along with a summary of all relevant approach altitudes.
This reduces the number of printed charts on board and significantly lowers the associated logistics costs. Furthermore, the decision for Lido RouteManual puts transavia.com in an ideal position to take advantage of Lufthansa Systems' electronic navigation charts (Lido eRouteManual) in the future.
"I am proud that transavia.com expands our cooperation to further optimize their flight operations and lower costs. Its decision for another product of the Lido FlightOps Suite demonstrates that our product strategy to develop integrated IT solutions and platforms is the right way to go," explains Stefan Auerbach, Senior Vice President Sales EMEA/Central at Lufthansa Systems.
transavia.com has been optimizing its flight planning with Lido OC from Lufthansa System for eight years. Since both Lido RouteManual and Lido OC are based on the same aeronautical database, the low-cost carrier will benefit from a high degree of integration and more efficient processes in flight operations.
