Fuel costs account for more than 27% of an airline’s operating expenses. And with net profits totaling just 4.6% of revenues, even a small decrease in fuel consumption can have a big impact on the bottom line.
Horizon® Weight and Balance increases fuel savings by providing full load planning capabilities, including a graphical user interface (GUI) framework, for all the functionalities required to load and dispatch an aircraft, plus all legally required documentation for both airlines and ground handlers.
It seamlessly combines aircraft and flight technical data with variable information on payload, allowing an aircraft’s weight and center of gravity to change with fuel consumption. With its close integration with check-in systems, Horizon Weight and Balance enables aircraft to fly more efficiently and cost-effectively than ever before – without compromising safety.
Horizon Weight and Balance supports all IATA standards, following recommended practices that govern the acceptance of operational data by load control systems to provide automated and optimized load distribution for any aircraft type.
