The software analyzes data from more than 100 reports, which integrates with existing airline systems through a user-friendly data interface. Any recommendations GoDirect Fuel Efficiency offers, which allow for full compliance with the European Union emissions trading system legislation, can be quickly deployed into existing or customized analytics reports and dashboards. 

"Typically, fuel consumption accounts for as much as 20 to 40% of an airline's operating costs, and existing users of our GoDirect Fuel Efficiency software have reported fuel savings of more than 2% annually," Jason Wissink, Honeywell Aerospace’s senior sales director of Connectivity Services says. 

Honeywell’s solution is also being utilized by Finnair, Etihad Airways and Turkish Airlines. Japan Airlines currently owns and lease 227 aircraft. Its fleet includes 10 Boeing models, two Embraer models, five Bombardier models and one Saab 340B.
