B. Setting FIR Avoidance
The Aviapages integration allows you to customize your flight time calculations by specifying which Flight Information Regions (FIRs) you want to avoid. Avoiding certain FIRs can be essential to ensure your flights are optimized and compliant with your specific operational requirements. Here's how you can set up FIR avoidance:
To configure FIR avoidance, log in to your FL3XX account and navigate to the 'Settings' menu.
In the 'Settings' menu, locate and click on 'Integrations.' This is where you can manage all your integrated services, including Aviapages.
Within the 'Integrations' section, find and select 'Aviapages.' This will take you to the Aviapages integration settings.
Under the Aviapages integration settings, you will find an option labeled 'Routing FIRs to avoid.' Click on this option to begin configuring your FIR avoidance preferences.
Specify FIRs to Avoid: In the 'Routing FIRs to avoid' section, you can input the codes of the FIRs you wish to avoid. Make sure to separate each FIR with a space to ensure the system correctly interprets your selections.
- FIR1 <space> FIR2 <space> FIR3
After you've entered the FIRs you want to avoid, be sure to save your settings. This will ensure that your flight time calculations take into account your specified FIR avoidance preferences.
It's a good practice to review your FIR avoidance settings to confirm that they match your operational requirements. Additionally, you can run test scenarios to verify that the system accurately avoids the specified FIRs during flight time calculations.
Please note that you do not need a pre-existing account with Aviapages to utilize this integration. FL3XX takes care of it, allowing you to customize flight time calculations and optimize your operations without any prior commitments to Aviapages.
