■ MAURITIUS: Air Mauritius selects DW International's GRPS Web UI for RAIM Predictions.

Air MauritiusAir Mauritius (MK) has selected DW International's GNSS (Global Navigation Satellite System) RAIM/RNP Prediction Service Web-based User Interface (GRPS Web User Interface). Air Mauritius will be using the GRPS Web User Interface to support its Performance-based Navigation (PBN) operations, including Basic-RNP 1 as now required for Hong Kong International Airport.

The web service provides a user-friendly interface allowing flight planners and dispatchers to perform pre-flight RAIM checks, store tail configurations, aerodromes, waypoints and entire routes to reduce workload and potential human error.
We're seeing more and more operators like Air Mauritius integrate the GRPS Web UI into their operations in a matter of days so they can meet the requirements of Basic-RNP 1 at Hong Kong International Airport and other destinations,” said Kieran Conlon, Head of Operations and Support at DWI.
Due to its ease of use, a short classroom training course was all that was required for dispatchers to learn how to manage and operate the GRPS Web UI. Air Mauritius will continue to receive support from the DWI dedicated support helpdesk.
