Jet Airways has obtained regulatory approval for the use of RNAV1 (Area Navigation) across its entire jet aircraft fleet. This is subsequent to the recently introduced Performance Based Navigation (PBN)
procedures in India.
airline has also obtained regulatory approval for the conduct of RNP 0.3 approaches at
applicable airfields. With this advanced technology aircraft can operate on any station referenced navigation aids or self
contained aids or both, enabling optimization of airspace, reducing
dependency on routes based on ground navigation aids and permitting reduced separation between two airborne aircrafts, without compromising safety standards.
Mr. Wolfgang Prock-Schauer, CEO, Jet Airways
said, "The continuing growth of aviation calls for efficient utilisation of available airspace
to enhance operational efficiency. At Jet Airways we are proud that we have become the first airline in India to be approved by Regulatory
authorities to use RNAV 1 Performance Based Navigation (PBN) and conduct RNP 0.3 approaches wherever appropriate. This is proof of our
greater commitment to safety of operations."
