Today’s aviation industry is constantly looking for new technologies and solutions to regulate fuel efficiency, increase operational performance, and protect the environment. In fact, these are top priorities for airlines. Amadeus Altéa Departure Control Flight Management was designed to address these priorities, and LATAM Airlines Group is the latest airline customer to get on board with the solution.
The new platform automatically analyzes the passenger and cargo load to determine the optimal aircraft load distribution and calculate the quantity of fuel required, in advance of every flight departure.
“The flight management solution is helping us to optimize the use of aircraft capacity, by providing full visibility of available space in real time and predicting the underload of a flight accurately,” said Jorge Ihnen, VP Operations, LATAM Airlines Group. “We are already benefiting from being able to determine exactly how much extra cargo we are able to load, and communicate this to relevant areas in a timely manner.”
Our flight management solution exceeds automation expectations. For example, the Flight Management mobile ramp application allows airlines to communicate with its staff at the aircraft, according to Vicky Huertas, Commercial VP, Airlines Latin America & Caribbean for Amadeus. The modular nature of Amadeus Altéa means that airlines all over the world can benefit from the solutions they choose, as it “provides a high level of integration with existing systems.”
LATAM Airlines Group’s Ihnen went on to say, “We have successfully implemented this technology across the airline group and were well supported by Amadeus’s project team from start to finish.”
