Lufthansa CityLine Ups Avro RJ Efficiency with Pacelab CI OPS

Regional carrier purchases cost index software for BAe Avro RJ85 aircraft

(PresseBox) ( Berlin, )
Regional carrier Lufthansa CityLine has purchased additional licenses of cost index software Pacelab CI OPS in order to optimize the operational efficiency of its BAe Avro RJ85 aircraft. The software will supply variable speed tables for the climb, cruise and descent phases, which can be used to create cost index-optimized flight plans.

Pacelab CI OPS is the brainchild of Lufthansa CityLine and Berlin software provider PACE. When run on Electronic Flight Bags, Pacelab CI OPS enables flight crews to determine the most cost-efficient trajectory in any given situation and to achieve significant en-route savings. The software is standard issue on board Lufthansa CityLine’s Bombardier and Embraer regional jets and is progressively being introduced to regional sister airlines Eurowings, Augsburg Airways and Air Dolomiti.

Captain Alexander Holhut, Manager Operational Services Cockpit at Lufthansa CityLine, said: "Successful operational efficiency management is the result of many small steps toward a clearly-defined goal. Our aim is to improve every single aspect of our flight operations, and state-of-the-art tools like Pacelab CI OPS offer invaluable support on our way forward."
