Navtech signs long-term deal with Ryanair for electronic charts and FMS Data

The parties seamlessly converted Ryanair to Navtech paper charts and FMS data on August 21, 2014, and are accelerating Ryanair's transition to an electronic flight bag with Navtech's state-of-the-art cockpit solution, iCharts EFB.

WATERLOO, ON – Navtech Inc., a leader in flight operations software and services, signed a long-term deal with Ryanair, to provide aeronautical charts and flight management system (FMS) data for use onboard its fleet of 300 Boeing 737-800s.  

Based in Ireland, Ryanair will grow from 82 million passengers in 2014 to over 150 million passengers by the end of FY2024. Known for its volume and continued rapid expansion, Ryanair’s progressive growth plans require partners and solutions with similar characteristics, and Navtech was their choice for navigational data.

The parties seamlessly converted Ryanair to Navtech paper charts and FMS data on August 21, 2014, and are accelerating Ryanair’s transition to an electronic flight bag with Navtech’s state-of-the-art cockpit solution, iCharts EFB.

Navtech’s iCharts EFB was released earlier this year and Ryanair’s adoption of this solution heralds its immediate and timely advent to the market. iCharts EFB provides pilots with quick and easy access to the most up-to-date data as well as customization options based on user and organization size.

“Navtech has been working with Ryanair to incorporate the iCharts EFB solution into their demanding operational model,” states Mike Hulley, President and CEO at Navtech. “This partnership has resulted in a product that now meets all of the operational needs of the world’s largest global network carriers, the largest low cost carriers – and everyone in between.”

“Ryanair is pleased to launch Navtech Charts and FMS data on board our flights this summer,” said Michael Hickey, Group Director of Operations at Ryanair. “In Navtech, we found a partner whose products will help us to deliver further efficiencies as we grow from our current 300 aircraft fleet to 520 aircraft over the next 10 years”.

A three month project successfully culminated in Navtech replacing Ryanair’s previous solutions with improved paper charts and FMS data. “The transition of paper charts and FMS data was seamless,” said Michael Hickey. “We will now eliminate paper charts in the cockpit by deploying Navtech’s iCharts EFB software on board our entire fleet.”
