Jeppesen, a Boeing Company, recently signed a five-year service agreement with LOT Polish Airlines, the flagship carrier of Poland, to provide digital charting for LOT's electronic flight bag (EFB) platform. LOT will incorporate Jeppesen FliteDeck Pro on Windows tablets as its charting EFB solution and will continue to use Jeppesen NavData® for digital navigation, through the agreement.
"We have maintained a long-standing relationship with Jeppesen based on trusted data and the delivery of the most accurate flight information available," said Mateusz Kołakowski, program manager, LOT Polish Airlines. "We look forward to using Windows tablets to access all of our critical flight information through Jeppesen FliteDeck Pro, which reduces preparation time and increases situational awareness on the ground and in the air."
The use of FliteDeck Pro will eliminate operational paper content from LOT aircraft, which improves fuel consumption based on weight reduction. FliteDeck Pro features real-time, data driven flight information for all phases of flight, and is displayed per the preferences of the pilot. FliteDeck Pro also significantly reduces pilot workload through automated processes.
"LOT Polish Airlines is one of the longest continuously operating airlines in Europe and we are proud to provide them with the tools to continue their digital transformation," said Norman Wagner, director, Jeppesen Strategic Sales & Service – Europe. "Eliminating cumbersome paper based materials through use of Jeppesen FliteDeck Pro improves pilot workflow and optimizes operational efficiency by providing all essential flight information on LOT Windows tablets."
Jeppesen NavData is developed from a comprehensive aviation database, which is composed of more than one million records. To ensure accuracy, Jeppesen flight information analysts edit and verify approximately 150,000 database transactions generated from worldwide aviation data source documents during every 28-day revision cycle.
