Icelandair opts for Lido/eRouteManual
Apr 12, 2017 - The Windows-based Lido/eRouteManual app enables Icelandair pilots to benefit from paperless navigation.
Icelandic carrier to deploy navigation solution from Lufthansa Systems

Lufthansa Systems today announced Icelandair as a new customer of its Windows-based Lido/eRouteManual navigation solution. The Icelandic carrier has also opted for the Lido/AMM (Airport Moving Map) add-on module. The two companies recently signed a five-year agreement to this effect.

“Icelandair initially had a workgroup review whether switching to digital navigational charts and a new chart supplier would adversely affect the operation in the short and long term. Negative effects from the change was found to be negligible though getting accustomed to the new chart layouts and software would of course be challenging for the flight crews. Our review concluded the Lido/eRouteManual to be more advanced in many ways compared to competitor products,” said Alvar Sverrisson, Project Manager and Flight Standards Specialist at Icelandair. “In the end, we were generally impressed with the Lido/eRouteManual features and since its introduction into our operation, the feedback from our crews has been overwhelmingly positive.”

Lido/eRouteManual is an electronic version of the navigation maps and has already been deployed by more than 50 airlines worldwide. The application for Windows-based systems comprises navigation maps for take-off and landing procedures as well as flight maps that include all important route information like altitude data, course of rivers and airport features. These maps are generated directly from the Lido/FMS navigation database, which includes worldwide aeronautical information. The app’s Lido/AMM module provides precise airport maps that facilitate navigation for pilots during taxi operations by showing the aircraft’s current position.

Thanks to wireless data updating via the Mobile Updater Icelandair pilots are no longer tied to fixed updating processes. Instead, they can update the digital navigation maps anytime and anywhere. This saves time and allows pilots maximum flexibility, because an Internet connection is all they need to update. In addition to the maps, Icelandair will also use the FMS data provided by Lufthansa Systems, which it will source from Honeywell.

“We are very proud that Icelandair has selected our navigation solutions,” said Marco Cesa, Senior Vice President Regional Management EMEA at Lufthansa Systems. “The trend toward mobile solutions for a paperless flight deck offering greater flexibility for pilots shows no sign of slowing down.”

Icelandair is an Icelandic carrier based at the country’s largest airport in Keflavík. With a fleet of 32 aircraft, the airline serves more than 40 travel destinations in Europe and North America.
