CEB inks partnership with Canadian-based NAVTECH

New flight planning software to increase flight efficiency

Cebu Pacific (CEB), the leader in the Philippine aviation industry, recently signed an agreement with Ontario-based Navtech, Inc. for the use of the Navtech Flight Planning (NFP) software which will further improve operating efficiencies.

NFP is a superior state-of-the-art flight planning software, provided by Navtech, a leader in flight operations software serving more than 350 airline and aviation services customers.

Navtech CEO Mike Hulley said, “Navtech combined Cebu Pacific’s mixed fleets onto a single platform, enabling our new mapping technologies and online filing functionality to support their dispatchers.”

Their product enables CEB pilots to use dynamic route construction functionality and optimized fuel burn calculations. The software also has integrated graphics and textual weather for the most efficient and optimized routes.

“CEB passengers will definitely benefit from this new technology because it allows us to sustain our low fare advantage in the market. Using this world class technology helps us to save on fuel and other operating costs, which we continue to pass on, in the form of lower fares, to our passengers,” said CEB VP for Marketing and Distribution Candice Iyog.

CEB is the third-largest low-cost carrier in Asia, flying to 32 domestic and 14 key international destinations in the ASEAN region.  It has a current fleet of 21 Airbus and 8 ATR72-500 aircraft, and expects delivery of 19 more aircraft from 2010-2014.
