Honeywell´s (NYSE: HON) Connected Aircraft GoDirectâ¢ Fuel Efficiency software has been selected by Royal Jordanian Airlines to reduce fuel usage on its fleet of 24 aircraft, the company said.
The innovative software is part of Honeywell´s GoDirect suite of more than 50 Connected Aircraft services. Honeywell´s offering uses data analysis, reporting and monitoring tools to identify fuel-saving opportunities that make flying more cost-efficient and better for the environment.
Through an intuitive interface, Honeywell´s GoDirect Fuel Efficiency software integrates existing airline systems with more than 100 ready-made analysis reports. This allows airlines to deploy the solution and immediately begin using customized reports based on individual stakeholders´ needs, which can reduce fuel costs by up to 5 percent. Although fuel efficiency results can vary by aircraft and airline, fuel consumption can account for 20 to 40 percent of an airline´s operating costs. Even single-digit percentage improvements in fuel savings can save tens of millions of dollars per year.

Royal Jordanian joins an expanding list of global customers already using Honeywell´s innovative GoDirect Fuel Efficiency software, including India´s Jet Airways, Japan Airlines, Finnair and Turkish Airlines.
