Honeywell has launched an analytics-based platform designed to help airlines increase profits while improving efficiency and the overall passenger experience.

Honeywell Forge analyses disparate data from a variety of aircraft, airport, government and Honeywell sources. It provides actionable insights and alerts to airlines so they can improve their understanding of the fleet, profitability and passenger experience.

The integrated software solution combines a range of individual aircraft and overall airline data into a single, easy-to-use and individually customisable dashboard.

It includes solutions for flight operations, efficiency and connected maintenance in a single user interface. It provides alerts and identifies savings opportunities, helping airlines maximise profits, while improving workflows between pilots, ground maintenance and operations and improving productivity.

The suite can also be scaled, enabling airlines to address their specific operational pain points, including flight delays due to unexpected aircraft maintenance.

It features applications that have already been implemented globally across a range of airlines and aircraft.

The company claimed that airlines can realise fuel savings of up to $140,000 per aircraft ever year. This is in addition to maintenance savings of up to $40,000 per annum for each aircraft through the Honeywell Forge.

Honeywell Forge for Airlines is the next evolution of the company’s GoDirect Connected Maintenance and GoDirect Flight Efficiency solutions.

The new software platform has been designed to provide the optimum flight plan based on real-time conditions. In addition, it will forecast and provide insights and actions to help improve fuel-efficient flights, and provide predictive maintenance alerts.

“This tool will forecast how much money airlines can save based on the data-driven decisions they make by using it.”

The platform is part of the Honeywell Forge solutions serving the building, industrial, worker and cybersecurity segments.

Honeywell Connected Enterprise, Aerospace, vice-president and general manager of software and services John Peterson said: “Airlines want an easy solution to analyse and manage their costs in one place, and Honeywell is providing it through unlocking their data to create what is essentially their own profit calculator.

“This tool will forecast how much money airlines can save based on the data-driven decisions they make by using it. It’s a modular, adaptable and easy-to-personalise service that meets a specific or critical airline need. It puts them in control.”
