Honeywell (NYSE: HON) is providing two airlines with Honeywell Forge software to help increase operational efficiencies and decrease costs associated with several factors, including unnecessary fuel burn. Fleets from GOL Airlines of Brazil and Sky Regional Airlines of Canada have joined a growing list of more than 10,000 aircraft worldwide harnessing the power of Honeywell Forge, with more than 3,000 using the Honeywell Forge Flight Efficiency module to make their airline more profitable.
GOL Airlines, the largest domestic airline in Brazil, has begun using the software for its fleet of 138 Boeing 737s. “We are committed to running the most efficient operations possible by utilizing the latest technology,” said Conrado Burgarelli, fuel efficiency engineer, GOL Airlines. “With Honeywell Forge Flight Efficiency, we’ll get a more accurate and timelier picture of where we are with our fuel-saving initiatives and ideas for new ways to improve flight efficiency.”
Sky Regional Airlines, a Canadian airline operating under the Air Canada Express banner, has implemented the software across its fleet of 25 Embraer E175 aircraft. Using Honeywell Forge Flight Efficiency across this uniform fleet of aircraft, the airline generates consistently reliable data it can use to create the most efficient routes possible.
“By using connectivity to help analyze and track aircraft while they are in route, pilots can better adjust flight plans for greater efficiency, and operators now have more data at their disposal to make smart decisions,” said John Peterson, vice president and general manager, Software and Services at Honeywell Connected Enterprise, Aerospace. “The results are enhanced safety, better operations and improved operating results.”
Honeywell Forge Flight Efficiency analyzes and simplifies streams of disparate data from a wide variety of sources, making it easier for operators to develop, implement and measure initiatives that help reduce costs. Some of the ways the platform helps operators and pilots streamline to achieve increased efficiency and savings include:
Honeywell Forge Flight Efficiency is one component of Honeywell Forge, which includes in-air and on-ground solutions for flight operations, flight efficiency, and connected maintenance in a single user interface. By providing alerts and identifying savings opportunities, the solution can help airlines maximize their profits while improving workflows between pilots, ground maintenance and operations to increase productivity.
Honeywell Forge software solutions serve the aircraft, building, industrial, worker and cybersecurity segments.
