Navigation Data and Charts for Cathay Pacific

Navigation Data and Aeronautical Charts for Cathay Pacific

Cathay SigningOn a snowy Wednesday in January, two business leaders shook hands and agreed to strengthen their meaningful business relationship.  Captain Russell Davie, General Manager of Flight Operations for Cathay Pacific Airways and Mike Hulley, Navtech President & CEO signed a multi-year contract for the provisioning of aeronautical charts and navigation data.  The Navtech Charts and the Honeywell FMS and ARINC 424 Navigation Data will be supplied to Cathay Pacific, as well as their subsidiary Dragonair and the joint venture all-cargo carrier Air Hong Kong.

Cathay Pacific has been a Navtech Charts supplement customer for many years, and is a member of the Navtech Charts Council and the Navtech Advisory Group.  “We are happy to partner with Navtech working towards a fully e-enabled solution for our flight operations,” said Captain Russell Davie.  “They have shown a real willingness to listen to and work with their customers.”

Both companies intend to use this extended period of commitment to further innovation and production of Navtech’s Charts products, specifically the electronic charts product, Navtech eCharts.  Navtech eCharts has been used by Navtech’s customers for ten years.  Navtech is currently developing a new release and has been working closely with Cathay Pacific and other charts customers to upgrade the GUI interface, underlying architecture, and ground communication tools.  These enhancements will form the infrastructure for Navtech to easily support all Classes of EFB and all devices from tablets to installed avionics.

“Our long-term relationship with Cathay Pacific has been significantly enhanced by this confidence boost in our Charts innovation,” said Mike Hulley, President and CEO of Navtech.  “We are proud to supply multiple products to a premier airline which has such an extensive network and powerful industry reputation as they will provide valuable experience and advice to enhance our offerings overall.”
