This new generation of the proven flight planning solution from Lufthansa Systems offers extensive automation and optimization functions for flight planning and control processes.

 

Ethiopian Airlines will be using Lido Flight Planning Services (Lido/FPLS) for five years at a total contract value of EUR 3,380,000 (USD 3,825,845.66).

“We are pleased to furher cement our collaboration with Lufthansa Systems by upgrading our flight planning system to Lido/Flight 4D, having used its earlier version, Lido Flight System, for the last five years.

“The Lido Flight Planning Service is one of the most effective flight planning solutions worldwide and has been rewarding in augmenting our efforts to optimise flight planning and control endeavors in our expanding service and latest technology acquisition. With the introduction of Lido/Flight 4D system, we are aiming to further optimise our routings and flight planning processes, thereby reaping benefits in terms of reduced flying time and fuel consumption,” said Tewolde GebreMariam, Group Chief Executive Officer, Ethiopian Airlines.

The core features of Lido/Flight 4D are its integrated and continually updated aeronautical database and the so-called optimiser. Lido/Flight 4D calculates the most suitable route for each flight based on all flight-related data, weather conditions and the current airspace situation including any restrictions.
