A first of many

Honey­well con­cludes first-ever ad­vanced air­line data an­a­lyt­ics trial with Cathay Pa­cific.

HWM (Malaysia) - - REPORT -

Honey­well re­cently con­cluded the first ad­vanced data an­a­lyt­ics trial for the air­line in­dus­try with Cathay Pa­cific. The trial was to demon­strate how the use of ad­vanced data an­a­lyt­ics could sig­nif­i­cantly im­prove op­er­a­tional avail­abil­ity of its A330 fleet.

“Man­ag­ing un­sched­uled main­te­nance events can be both costly and time-con­sum­ing for an air­line, caus­ing po­ten­tial de­lays that put its on-time per­for­mance record at risk,” Brian Davis, Vice Pres­i­dent, Air­lines, Asia Pa­cific, Honey­well Aerospace, said. “The suc­cess of this trial pro­gram sup­ports the power of Honey­well’s Con­nected Aircraft Ser­vices and demon­strates to air­lines that be­ing con­nected is more than just stream­ing video to pas­sen­gers — it’s about mak­ing sure the en­tire aircraft is a com­pre­hen­sive and ag­ile plat­form of in­ter­con­nected prod­ucts and ser­vices that make fly­ing safer, more ef­fi­cient and more cost ef­fec­tive.”

Honey­well’s trial with its GoDirect Main­te­nance Ser­vices was con­ducted us­ing ex­ist­ing datalinks within Cathay Pa­cific’s sys­tem. Ul­ti­mately, the trial yielded a 35-per­cent re­duc­tion in op­er­a­tional dis­rup­tions, with a false pos­i­tive rate of less than one per­cent. This meant that the Hong Kong-based air­line was able to save sev­eral hun­dred thou­sand dol­lars in op­er­a­tions and main­te­nance costs on a sin­gle aircraft sys­tem.

“We are com­mit­ted to pro­vid­ing our cus­tomers with a com­fort­able travel ex­pe­ri­ence and record on­time per­for­mance,” com­mented Christopher Gibbs, En­gi­neer­ing Di­rec­tor, Cathay Pa­cific. “Honey­well’s GoDirect

Main­te­nance Ser­vices of­fer­ing helps us main­tain this com­mit­ment by re­duc­ing the num­ber of aux­il­iary power unit down­time events and im­prov­ing our first-time fix rate. We plan to ex­plore how to ex­pand the of­fer­ing to ad­di­tional aircraft sys­tems.”
