Boeing today announced, through its subsidiary Jeppesen, a new 10-year service contract with Turkish Airlines, the national carrier of Turkey. The agreement includes both paper and digital Jeppesen charts, FliteDeck Pro, electronic flight bag (EFB) services, NavData digital navigation services, Airport Moving Map capabilities, e-Link digital chart library services and Receiver Autonomous Integrity Monitoring (RAIM) prediction technology.
Jeppesen navigational data is provided to customers on a “changes-only” basis, which allows for data download speeds that are many times faster than comparative industry providers. This allows for rapid integration into flight management systems, and can take airlines to the skies much sooner with the most accurate data available.
While Turkish Airlines will receive paper charts from Jeppesen, in the near future, digital flight information provided through the use of FliteDeck Pro enhances situational awareness, using real-time, data driven flight information on tablet and EFB.
Aiding Turkish Airlines navigation capabilities, Jeppesen RAIM technology assesses the integrity of GPS signals and the accuracy of airborne GPS navigation equipment. Jeppesen NavData is developed from a comprehensive aviation database, which is composed of more than one million records. To ensure accuracy, Jeppesen flight information analysts edit and verify approximately 150,000 database transactions generated from worldwide aviation data source documents during every 28-day revision cycle.
