Lufthansa Systems Adds Powerful Visualization Module To Its Flight Planning Solution Lido/Flight


– Integration of Lido/Flight Winds – More efficiency for flight planning process

January 8, 2013– Lufthansa Systems today announced that it has added the powerful module Lido/Flight Winds for visualizing flight paths and other information to its well known flight planning solution Lido/Flight. This enables airline dispatchers to better monitor active flights until landing and to offer support to pilots when necessary. This new module enables airlines to increase the efficiency of their flight operations and the punctuality of their flights. By integrating Lido/Flight Winds, the airline IT specialist has once again enhanced the range of features offered by Lido/Flight.

“The integration of Lido/Flight Winds once again underlines how we continually invest in innovative technologies,” said Stefan Auerbach, SVP Airline Solutions at Lufthansa Systems. “This boosts the value of our products and makes a significant contribution to improving our customers’ competitiveness.”

Lido/Flight is one of the most powerful flight planning solutions in the world and is used by airlines of all sizes with a wide variety of business models. The solution calculates the most efficient route for each flight from countless possible combinations while taking all current flight-related data into account. This makes it possible to optimize routes in terms of costs, flight time or fuel consumption. Airlines can reduce their fuel costs by up to five percent with Lido/Flight. The integrated Lido/Flight solution also offers numerous additional modules for calculating the optimal takeoff thrust, making the best use of temporary flight paths and automatically generating electronic briefing packets for crews, for example.

The supplementary module Lido/Flight Winds generates precise cartographic visualizations of the flights planned with Lido/Flight. These can be superimposed with data from other sources, such as weather radar images or information on the airspace situation.

The user-friendly graphical display of the flight situation enables airline dispatchers to make prompt tactical decisions while tracking a flight, such as whether to fly around areas of bad weather or airspaces with capacity bottlenecks. This can increase flight punctuality and reduce the costs associated with delays.
