Lufthansa to Provide iPad Navigation Charts for AirBridgeCargo Airlines
Lufthansa Systems will provide its iPad Lido/iRouteManual navigation charts to AirBridgeCargo Airlines.
The Russian cargo carrier signed a five-year contract with Lufthansa to deploy the iPad navigation charts on its Boeing 747s.
The Lido/iRouteManual for the iPad gives pilots access to relevant navigation charts, NOTAMs and general text information with mobile broadband-enabled updates, according to Lufthansa.
“We have been using the network planning and flight operations systems and the paper-based route charts from Lufthansa Systems for several years,” said Dimitri Rokatian, head of the IT department at AirBridgeCargo. “We were impressed by the high quality of the products and the exemplary customer service offered by Lufthansa Systems. Therefore, the decision to opt for Lido/iRouteManual and Lido/AMDB was the next logical step.”
