VipJet Limited Opts for Navigation Data From Lufthansa Systems

The Irish carrier VipJet Limited will use the comprehensive navigation data from Lufthansa Systems for their Flight Management System (FMS). Both companies recently signed a 5-year contract to this effect.

The FMS database contains all important route information including altitude and airport data for optimizing routes and supporting autopilots on board modern aircraft. The navigation data, which are based on global aeronautical information, are updated every 28 days according to the AIRAC cycle and can be customized to specific routes and for the use in any type of aircraft. Lufthansa Systems can thus meet the individual requirements and needs of VipJet Limited at all times.

The Irish carrier VipJet Limited, based in Shannon, Ireland, was founded in 2008. It operates a fleet of 15 private jets serving private, VIP and business clients.
