Lufthansa Systems has finalised an agreement with Airbus under which the information technology specialist will provide its electronic route manual product across the Airbus range.

E-ROUTE Manual deal

The A380 will be the first to use the product in a Class 3 electronic flight bag (EFB), fully integrated with the aircraft’s systems. But the system, in a Class 1 or Class 2 EFB with full operations functionality as well as charting, is available immediately for retrofit on A320 family aircraft, A330s and A340s, says Lufthansa Systems.

The eRouteManual includes en-route, approach, departure and airport taxiway charts drawn from a continually updated database. The agreement follows a memorandum of understanding signed last year. Lufthansa Systems says it is negotiating to offer its product in Boeing aircraft, but points out that Jeppesen, which offers similar software, is a Boeing subsidiary.
