The International Air Transport Association (IATA) has opted to include Lido Sky Data from Lufthansa Systems in the Global Aviation Data Management (GADM) platform, including the Flight Data eXchange and Incident Data eXchange safety databases.
Lido Sky Data includes worldwide standardized navigation information for over 35,000 aerodromes worldwide, including airports, heliports, runways, waypoints, navaids, airways and flight procedures. The data is updated according to the AIRAC cycle and is in line with ARINC 424 and various other industry standards, such as the RTCA DO-200 and DO-201.
IATA is the trade association for the world’s airlines, representing more than 290 airlines or 83% of total air traffic. It supports many areas of aviation activity and helps formulate industry policy on critical aviation issues.
“We are excited to have chosen the Lido Sky Data Solution from Lufthansa Systems”, said Olena Vasylchenko, IATA’s Operations, Safety and Security Director Business Systems and Performance. “This selection is based on the depth and granularity of the aeronautical information that is available through the Lido solution. These data will form a core reference dataset for our aggregated data sharing programs, which are industry driven and geared towards safety and operational benefits of our members.”
“Lufthansa Systems is very happy that such an important organization as IATA has chosen to include Lido Sky Data in its GADM platform. It represents another great use case of Lido Sky Data which is already widely used in a large amount of applications within the aviation industry”, said Michael Sauter, Senior Product Owner Lido Data Solutions at Lufthansa Systems.
