Libyan Airlines opts for mobile navigation solution from Lufthansa Systems

Apr 14, 2016 - Lufthansa Systems today announced that the pilots of Libyan Airlines will now use its Lido/mPilot all-in-one navigation solution. Thanks to the innovative app they have mobile access to all of the latest charts in digital form. The two companies signed recently a five-year contract for the solution.

Lido/mPilot is a mobile navigation solution which supports pilots before and during a flight. Around 60 airlines have already opted for Lido/mPilot since the app was launched in early 2015. The modular app combines airport maps, a dynamically generated enroute chart, and a document management and distribution system that enables pilots to access documents and messages both on the flight deck and on the move. A status overview with intuitive icons guarantees a clear flow of information. Pilots receive important updates via push notifications.

Libyan Airlines has opted for the navigation solution’s latest software release, which has been available since November 2015 and includes additional optimizations: Now all general documents (the GEN part) can be viewed directly in the app in a clear, interactive table, and pilots can search for and bookmark individual files if necessary. The new change log shows the details of updates from the regular data revision cycle (AIRAC), which offers improved data transparency. The new release also makes it possible to link directly to external systems.

The app has a modern look and feel and is intuitive to use, giving pilots quick, reliable access to the information they need on the flight deck. Reducing the number of paper documents on board not only simplifies logistics processes, it also minimizes potential sources of error. The trend towards increased app usage also has a positive effect on the environment because it saves large amounts of paper in the long term.

“The use of Lido/mPilot reduces paper documents on board the aircraft of Libyan Airlines. This simplifies processes and prevents mistakes,”
said Marco Cesa, Senior Vice President Regional Management EMEA at Lufthansa Systems. “We are delighted that we could simplify the airline’s logistic and we look forward to a successful collaboration.”

Libyan Airlines is Libya’s national carrier and has its headquarters in Tripoli. The airline was founded in 1964 and currently has a fleet of 10 aircraft serving more than 20 domestic and international destinations.
