Lion Air Group looks to NavBlue to bolster digital growth strategy

As Indonesia’s largest privately run airline, Lion Air Group is expected to be the launch customer of Boeing MAX-8 operated by Batik Air Malaysia and also will have more aircraft deliveries to strengthen its position in Southeast Asia. To support this intense growth while also improving safety and operational effectiveness, it has set in motion the steps to implement an electronic flight bag (EFB) strategy.

This in-depth overhaul includes a migration to electronic charts from NavBlue. This deal marks the debut of NavBlue Charts+ in Indonesia and with its support, may well be the first airline in Indonesia to deploy an EFB platform.

NavBlue’s Charts+ is a ready-to-use set of digital charts (IFR, terminal, en route) that draw on information published by national Aeronautical Information Services and are updated weekly, Charts+ is available for multiple platforms and can be customized to user requirements. Each piece of chart data is processed individually to provide relevant and customized content in all operational contexts.

Further enhancing the deployment is the integration of NavBlue’s Airport+ and NavBlue’s Navigation+ solutions. NavBlue’s Airport+ harnesses exclusive high-resolution satellite imagery provided by the Intelligence Business Cluster of Airbus Defense and Space. NavBlue’s Navigation+ has been successful in the marketplace for more than 30 years and NavBlue was the first company in the world to offer navigation data as a regular service, and draws on one of the world’s largest and still growing aeronautical databases.

“Our confidence in the integrity of NavBlue, from its commitment to its customers through quality products and quality support, makes this a highly beneficial partnership for today’s growth and sets us up well for our future growth,” said Capt Daniel Putut, managing director, Lion Air Group.

“We pride ourselves on being an organization genuinely committed to partnering with our customers in their pursuit of growth and excellence,” said NavBlue chief commercial and communication officer, Paul-Franck Bijou. “This project through its modern application of leading-edge, highly accurate, digital aero data, clearly represents that ideal.”
