Golden Myanmar Airlines selects navigation charts from Lufthansa Systems
Lufthansa Systems has announced that Golden Myanmar Airlines, which commenced operations at the start of this year, will be using the navigation charts provided by its Lido/RouteManual solution. The two companies signed a five-year contract to this effect.
The Lufthansa Systems navigation charts are generated directly from the company’s Lido navigation database, a source for worldwide aeronautical and topographical data. The charts display true-to-scale geographic information such as terrain features and rivers. They also include airport taxiway charts, approach and take-off charts, and a seamless worldwide route chart. The navigation charts' clear color-coding and self-explanatory symbols support visual thinking.
"The excellent quality and great user-friendliness of the navigation charts were the main reasons for our decision in favor of Lido/RouteManual. Being a young start-up airline, it was especially important to us to provide our pilots with the best information possible in a clear and comprehensible layout right from the very start,” said Captain Gilbert Randle, Chief Pilot of Golden Myanmar Airlines.
The fledgling carrier currently operates two aircraft but plans to expand its fleet in both short haul and medium range after 2013.
“Our agreement with Golden Myanmar Airlines represents our first step into a new market in Asia/Pacific with excellent growth potential,” said Olivier Krüger, SVP Regional Management Asia/Pacific at Lufthansa Systems. “Our portfolio offers a wide range of IT solutions that cover all of an airline’s business processes and are designed to meet the diverse requirements of different airline business models. Smaller airlines such as Golden Myanmar Airlines in particular can benefit from this broad portfolio.”
