GoDirect Fuel Efficiency software will provide Japan Airlines the right tools and data to supervise the present fuel consumption and thus improve fuel savings.
Japan Airlines has chosen Honeywell to provide its fuel-management service to decrease the fuel consumption and costs. Honeywell’s GoDirect Fuel Efficiency software, a part of Honeywell GoDirect Flight Services family of Connected Aircraft offerings, will provide Japan Airlines the right tools and data to supervise the present fuel consumption and thus improve fuel savings.
The software analyses over 100 reports through a user-friendly data interface that integrates with the existing airline systems. It also offers fuel-savings recommendations, which the airlines can bring into action to its existing or customized analytics reports and dashboards. It also provides recommendations that fully comply with the European Union emissions trading system legislation among many other software-based fuel-savings recommendations for each flight.
Jason Wissink, senior sales director, Connectivity Services, Honeywell Aerospace said, “Typically, fuel consumption accounts for as much as 20 to 40 percent of an airline’s operating costs, and existing users of our GoDirect Fuel Efficiency software have reported fuel savings of more than 2 percent annually. By gathering data from various sources and providing an analysis at every phase of flight, the GoDirect Fuel Efficiency software ensures that Japan Airlines can achieve fuel-efficiency target values and significantly reduce operational costs.”
Etihad Airways, Turkish Airlines and Finnair have also recently adopted Honeywell’s software package to enhance their fuel-efficiency programs. PWKD17022017
