Enhancing airlines' performance is all about knowing the current operational health state

The airline industry works on small profit margins. Each kilogram of fuel saved on a flight makes a difference. It can decide on whether the flight is profitable or loss making. Therefore, reducing operational costs is a key aspect to achieve higher profitability. Current trends of higher fuel prices lead to an increasing demand in proper fuel efficiency programs, which can measure the flight operations performance and implement respective procedures to achieve positive results.

However, it all starts by generating knowledge on the current health state of the flight operations procedures. Proper measurements and trustworthy data analysis are required to monitor and observe, whether the fuel saving initiatives have been generating the demanded positive outcome.

The AeroHealth Check focuses on flight operations during approach and ground ops to monitor current fuel saving initiatives and identifies new areas, where fuel savings can be achieved. The following areas are in core focus.

Traffic Delays

Understanding the overall traffic related delay situation at the airport provides knowledge and arguments to lower the problems.

Taxi Performance

Taxi speeds are varying among aircraft operators. Have you implemented a procedure to comply with most economical taxi speeds?

Learning from Competition

Knowing, who is the better aircraft operator is important, but do you know your competitions' procedures in order to learn from it?

Tracking Fuel Efficiency Procedures

40% of all flights are not flying constant descent approaches. Do you know your overall compliance at your hub airport?

Ground Congestions

Waiting on the ground for takeoff with running engines leads to significant operating costs. Do you know, how to reduce your taxi-out time?

The AeroHealth Check


1. Knowledge and DATA Generation

Data is key in order to generate a comprehensive and independent picture of the aircraft flight operations. We generate independent flight tracking data at your airport to monitor and store all flight movements. In parallel, we set up workshops and perform interviews with all involved departments in your organisation to identify, which area to be in focus. The results and findings produced during the knowledge generation process are used to identify optimisation potentials in your organisation.

2. Identification of Optimisation Potential

We identify the areas, where you have significant potential to reduce costs or improve efficiency, which, for example can apply to taxi procedures or descent procedures. The most convincing areas are targeted and further analysed. During this step, we jointly work on a solution to involve all relevant stakeholders within your organisation to drive the change internally.

3. Implementation of effective procedures

Knowing your saving potential is very important, but at the end of the day, your experts within the flight operations process including all involved departments have to be encouraged and motivated to apply respective measures to improve the performance. Our AeroHealth Check includes not only the process of raising awareness for fuel efficiency, but also the implementation process within your organisation.
