AirBridgeCa rgo (ABC) has commenced using Lufthansa Systems’ Lido/iRouteManual, Lido/Enroute and Lido/DocView IT solutions aimed at simplifying cockpit processes. The new IT solutions will ease the workload of ABC pilots by providing fast access to continually updated documents and data and reduce the airline’s operational costs at the same time. The new technology will be saving ABC a significant amount of money each year, the carrier said.
The airline plans to fully switch to the electronic cockpit by February 2015. Lido/iRouteManual and the associated apps are optimised for use on the Apple iPad with ABC pilots able to display the route on interactive charts on their devices. The navigation solution includes general maps, takeoff and landing charts, instrument flight rules (IFR) charts and depictions of airport runways. The crews can download the required charts – which are generated directly from the Lido navigation database and are always up to date – to their iPads and use them for flight preparation whenever they want, in the briefing room, in a hotel or at home.
