GE has signed an agreement with LAN Airlines to develop an optimised navigation network at Lima Jorge Chavez International Airport, and four other airports in Peru, Chile and Ecuador.

Under the performance-based navigation (PBN) services agreement, GE will design the optimised arrivals and departures using required navigation performance technology (RNP).

An advanced form of PBN, the RNP, can eliminate an average of ten nautical miles from the distance an airplane flies on its approach to landing and reduced annual fuel consumption and CO2 emissions.

RNP procedures can be deployed at any airport to allow aircraft to fly very precise paths with accuracy of less than a wingspan.

GE will work with DGAC-Peru, Corpac and LAN to integrate the RNP procedures into the busy Lima airspace.
