Republic Airways launches Navblue flight Planning software

Republic Airways has introduced Navblue’s N-Flight Planning solution

Republic, which is one of the largest regional airlines in North America is using the N-Flight Planning (N-FP) on its entire fleet of Embraer 170/175 aircraft to optimise for minimum flight time, fuel burn or total cost.

After a phase of planning, testing, training and practice sessions, N-FP has become part of Navblue’s suite of operational solutions, enabling flight dispatchers to rapidly compute flight plans while considering payload, aircraft performance, current weather, and air-traffic constraints.

Marc Lemeilleur, CEO of Navblue, added, “We are thrilled to help Republic Airways successfully launch N-FP. This is a testament to the hard work and dedication of both the Republic Airways and Navblue teams.

“Our innovative solutions are designed to streamline operations, optimise resources and increase productivity, and we are confident that Republic Airways will see significant benefits from this implementation. We look forward to continuing our collaboration and supporting Republic Airways in their technology transformation journey.”

Paul Kinstedt, Republic Airways senior vice president and chief operating officer, said, “The successful implementation of N-FP is a significant milestone in our strategic collaboration with NAVBLUE”.

“It’s a great start and gives us momentum heading into the next phase of the project. For this project to succeed, we need the entire team working together to keep the promises we’ve made to one another in terms of schedules and functionality.

“The FAA, our partners, our crews and our passengers need to know that this transition will maintain our unyielding commitment to safety, enhance operational efficiency, improve situational awareness and deliver a better travel experience.”

The launch of N-FP is the first step in Republic Airways adoption of Navblue’s Digital Operations Control Centre (OCC) solutions. The next phase of the collaboration will involve the implementation of NAVBLUE’s N-Ops & Crew (N-OC) solution, which will provide Republic Airways with a single solution for both operations and crew management, allowing the airline to better automate, manage, and optimise crew schedule planning, day-of-ops crew control, crew training and qualifications and crew mobile access.
