BOEING LAUNCHES DIRECT ROUTES AND WIND UPDATES

Two new services from Boeing will help airlines save fuel and increase environmental efficiency.

Boeing real-time services, Direct Routes and Wind Updates, help airline optimise flight paths to save fuel and time.

Direct Routes automatically alerts an airline’s operations centre and flight crew when a more fuel-efficient path opens up, pre-checking them for such factors as traffic conflicts, wind conditions and airspace constraints. Boeing says this can save more than 40,000 minutes of flight time per year.

Wind Updates will send datalink messages directly to the flight deck with real-time, flight-customized wind information, allowing the airplane’s flight management computer to optimize speeds, altitudes and trajectories.

No new equipment is necessary, says Boeing, who will make the services available next year.
