Stands can be blocked by departing aircraft leading to delay minutes and therefore additional costs. The result is usually a long taxi-in stop of aircraft with running engines leading to additional fuel burn. The general reasons can be early arrivals or delayed turnarounds. All these events can be automatically detected by the Performance Cockpit. Each delay minute results in direct and indirect costs of up to 400 USD and emission savings of 320 kg of CO2 per each event on average.
Aeroficial Intelligence helps here to detect blocked stands during the taxi process and performs a root cause analysis. For instance, if a taxi-in stop happened, the root cause might have been an early arrival or a delayed turnaround process, which can then be detected and provided in an event report based on Origin Airport, Stand Position, Aircraft Type and Aircraft Operator.
