Jeppesen signed a contract with the Russian Ministry of Transportation to supply access to Russian domestic airport data. As Jeppesen previously had been granted access to Russian domestic airway system data, the agreement increases Jeppesen navigation, operations and optimization solutions available for Russian operators, the company announced.

With access to both domestic airway system and domestic airport data, Jeppesen will be able to provide customers with a complete Russian flight information solution, which includes domestic and international NavData services, JetPlan flight planning, OpsData aircraft performance analysis and paper and digital charting. Jeppesen processing of Russian domestic data also helps to enable the transition from paper to electronic charting information on the flight deck for Russian operators.

“Inclusion of Russian domestic information onboard FMS navigation databases, flight planning systems and terminal and enroute charting provided by Jeppesen will allow us and other Russian airlines to increase safety and the economic efficiency of Russian domestic flights,” said Alexander Sharun, chief navigator and head of the UTair Airlines air navigation/AIS department. “Complete and accurate aeronautical information related to Russian domestic airports and airways is critically important to our operation.”

Through the agreement, Jeppesen’s NavData databases will contain all Russian airways as well as international and domestic airport and runway data. Aircraft flight management systems are now able to process this data. Domestic Russian approach, arrival and departure procedures will be gradually added to the NavData database.
