ERA Launches Interactive Route Map
The European Regions Airline Association (ERA) and global travel data and distribution experts
Innovata announced today the live launch of the first dynamic and interactive route map of the ERA
airline member network. The map is accessible from ERA's website at www.eraa.org.
Innovata is providing ERA with the latest release of its market leading mapping service which has
been specially configured for ERA so that all destinations, direct routes, schedules, and a
comprehensive timetable display for all current member airlines are dynamically plotted and
displayed for users searching and querying the networks and schedules of ERA member airlines.
The latest map version from Innovata provides users with a range of feature and functionality
upgrades including improved zoom and pan capabilities together with links through to Google maps
for all airports featured in the map displays.
The map also highlights some impressive statistics, illustrating the importance of the intra-European
air transport network for the mobility of EU citizens. Specifically the map demonstrates that:
ERA airline members collectively serve 483 cities across Europe linking over 3000 city
Route distances range from 13nm to 2,833nm.
The network spans Mehamn in Norway in the north, to Ouagadougou, Burkina Faso in the
south, Kangerlussuaq Airport, Greenland in the West and Norilsk, Russia in the east.
Richard Thorne, Managing Director of Aviation Business at Innovata said: "we look forward to a
long term relationship with ERA and we are delighted to have the opportunity to provide them with
our mapping service to help promote their members' route networks to a wider audience through
these highly visual map displays".
Mike Ambrose, Director General of ERA said: "ERA is delighted to have worked with Innovata to
offer this innovative mapping and timetable service that will not only benefit our members but
provides a valuable visual representation of the extensive network operated by ERA member
airlines each day. The map clearly demonstrates the importance of the intra-European air transport
industry; no other transport mode offers such a vast and interconnected network of services, and no other network can provide the vital accessibility required by some of the more remote regions of
Europe. We look forward to discussing further initiatives with Innovata to see how we may enhance
these benefits to our members."
