Jeppesen (Booth No. 3004) announced a new contract with the Russian Ministry of Transportation for more detailed domestic airport data. Previously, Jeppesen had been granted access only to domestic airway data. Having access to both data sets will allow the company to offer customers “a complete Russian flight information solution” including domestic and international NavData services, JetPlan flight planning, OpsData aircraft performance analysis and paper and digital charting. It will also enable Russian operators to transition from paper to electronic charting information. <o:p></o:p>
Under the agreement, Jeppesen’s NavData database will contain Russian airway and airport information and runway data. Domestic Russian approach, arrival and departure procedures will be added to the NavData database over time. Information about the Russian domestic airway system and domestic airports be used only by operators of aircraft registered in the Russian Federation. Foreign operators must use special procedures to gain access to Russian airways and airports.
