Honeywell Completes Advanced Data Analytics Trial with Cathay Pacific

Honeywell has completed a trial with Cathay Pacific to demonstrate how advanced data analytics can improve operational availability of its Airbus A330 fleet.

 Using existing datalinks, successful analysis of data from the equipment showed a 35% reduction in operational disruptions with a false positive rate of less than 1%, saving the airline several hundred thousand dollars in operations and maintenance costs on a single aircraft system.

“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,” said Brian Davis, vice president, Airlines, Asia Pacific, Honeywell Aerospace. “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.”

As part of Honeywell’s Connected Aircraft Services, the GoDirect Maintenance Services program captures the data in an intuitive and visual format. That data highlights the most critical faults to repair and shares that data with the airlines operations and maintenance centers. This allows operations and ground crews to prepare for any potential maintenance or part replacement before the failure occurs, thereby reducing operational disruptions and costs and improving first-time fix rates.

“We are committed to providing our customers with a comfortable travel experience and record on-time performance,” said Christopher Gibbs, engineering director at 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.”

Following the successful test program, Cathay Pacific and Honeywell will explore launching the GoDirect Maintenance Services across the airline’s fleet of A330s and B777s to improve on-time departures ensure a comfortable cabin environment and reduce operating costs.
