Lido/Flight covers all aspects of flight planning and provides dispatchers with many optimisation options regarding flight time, fuel consumption or costs of each flight. Taking into account the latest flight-related data such as weather conditions, total weight and the availability of airways, Lido/Flight calculates the most suitable route for each flight from all available options. This can lead to fuel savings of up to five percent.

The paper-based Lido/RouteManual chart solution and its electronic counterpart Lido/eRouteManual provide Libyan Airlines with navigation charts for take-off and landing procedures as well as airport and route charts. Generated directly from the Lido navigation database, the charts contain all important route information including altitude and airport data. The charts are updated weekly and the latest version can be downloaded for briefing at all times.
 “We need a powerful flight planning system and first-class navigation charts to ensure efficient and flexible day-to-day operations at Libyan Airlines. We selected Lido/Flight because of its high degree of automation and strong route optimization capabilities,” said Libyan Airlines flight operations director, Captain Fadel Elkaseh.
 “Thanks to our IT solutions for optimum flight planning we will make a significant contribution toward optimising the efficiency of Libyan Airlines’ flight operations,” said Marco Cesa, Lufthansa Systems’ senior vice president regional management Europe.
