New application for the Electronic Flight Bag (EFB)

“Every drop counts” is the motto. In future, new software will help to save fuel by optimising the flight profile and speed of aircraft during flight operations. Energy-efficient flight operations are a key success factor for the Lufthansa Group, and at the same time an important pillar of the Group’s environmental management activities. During a flight, the program processes the latest aircraft and weather data in order to calculate in real time the most economical flight curve for the remainder of the flight. A first prototype is due to undergo trials and will initially be tested on Lufthansa’s long-haul fleet.
