All Lufthansa Group airlines to use Lufthansa Systems solutions for navigation

Ten-year contract signed for Lido/RouteManual, Lido/mPilot, Lido/eRouteManual, Lido/AMDB, Lido/AMM and DVMS navigation solutions

Raunheim, November 27, 2018 – Lufthansa Systems today announced that all airlines in the Lufthansa Group will use its entire portfolio of navigation solutions over the next ten years. This includes the Lido/mPilot and Lido/eRouteManual electronic map solutions based on the Lido/RouteManual paper maps, the dynamic Lido/AMM airport moving map with the high-precision Lido/AMDB airport mapping database, and a solution for document management (DVMS).

“As the process owner, we sat down with our Lufthansa Systems colleagues very early on and constructively fleshed out the arrangement that now benefits all of us,” said Robert Nyenhuis, Vice President Flight Operations Standards & Projects Lufthansa Group Airlines.

Many airlines in the Lufthansa Group were already using the Lido/eRouteManual electronic navigation maps. The different individual contracts with these airlines have now been harmonized. Lufthansa Aviation Training will also employ the electronic navigation maps in the future so that pilots in training can use the same solution they will later find on the flight deck. This harmonization will reduce both administrative effort and costs. Up until now, only Lufthansa Passage pilots have benefited from the high-precision Lido/AMDB data. A master agreement for Lido/AMDB now offers other companies the opportunity to use the product as well.

“Despite the airlines’ different needs, we were able to quickly find solutions based on pragmatic, constructive collaboration,” said Dr. Bernd Jurisch, Head of Flight & Navigation Products & Solutions at Lufthansa Systems. “We are grateful for the great trust the Lufthansa Group is placing in us with this ten-year agreement.”

The Lufthansa Group is an aviation company with operations worldwide. Cargo and passenger transportation together account for about 87 percent of the Group’s revenues. The airlines in the Lufthansa Group include Lufthansa Airlines, Lufthansa Cargo, Lufthansa CityLine, Austrian Airlines, Swiss, Eurowings, Air Dolomiti, Edelweiss and Brussels.
