The flag carrier Nepal Airlines Corporation has started using NAVBLUE Flight Planning (N-FP) from October 29th, 2020. The airline was using the Conventional Computerized Flight Plan system before the introduction of N-FP.
Nepal Airlines, the all-Airbus aircraft operator, signed an agreement with NAVBLUE in May 2020 to make use of N-Flight Planning to optimize and enhance the flight operations. The N-FP operations went live on October 29th, 2020 after conducting trial runs for a couple of months.
Nepal Airlines is already using NAVBLUE’s Navigation+, Flight Data Analysis (FDA), Flysmart feature as well as N-RAIM and now also started using N-Tracking since August 2020. With N-Flight Planning it will be able to plan and operate on the safest routes in a highly optimized manner and further reduce operations costs.
N-Flight planning provides an approximate 33% cost-reduction as compared to present Flight Planning System charges.
BENEFITS OF N-FLIGHT PLANNING
1. Reduce Cost of Operations
Multidimensional, cost-optimizing models produce the most cost-efficient flight plans, savings in fuel, and time related expenses (crew, maintenance).
2. Optimise Flight Plans further
All necessary information, including real-time weather forecast, are fed to the N-Flight Planning algorithm to produce optimal and compliant plans.
3. Cut IT Cost
The web-based or hosted environment allows faster implementation as well as remote or on-site training. Get a lower Total Cost of Ownership and quicker Return on Investment.
Capt. Deepu Raj Jwarchan, Director- Flight Operations at Nepal Airlines said: “From our experience with NAVBLUE, we appreciate the quality and cost-efficiency of their products. N-Flight Planning will help Nepal Airlines to reduce costs even further and optimize our flight operations. This is a great enhancement for us, and we look forward to continuing and further strengthening our relationship with NAVBLUE in the years to come’’.
