Monitor and analyse fuel usage and requirement

Calculate indicative and estimated ZFW values within APM’s SmartOps *



With­in the immense­ly com­pet­i­tive avi­a­tion indus­try, air­line CEO’s and Oper­a­tions man­agers are under huge amounts of pres­sure to cut costs wher­ev­er pos­si­ble to ensure prof­itabil­i­ty.

As fuel and labour are the largest costs to air­lines, man­age­ment must find ways to reduce and mon­i­tor these through a mul­ti­tude of strate­gies and avenues. Improv­ing effi­cien­cy in process­es and detailed analy­sis of these fac­tors can assist air­lines in these reduc­tions.


What can APM do for your airline?


APM’s soft­ware pro­vides air­lines with a wide range of intel­li­gent func­tions to assist with their oper­a­tions, sav­ing them time and mon­ey. APM’s abil­i­ty to inte­grate and com­mu­ni­cate with 3rd par­ty ser­vice providers allows air­lines to stream­line process­es to save valu­able time and APM offer flex­i­bil­i­ty to our cus­tomers by ensur­ing we can inte­grate wher­ev­er pos­si­ble.


APM’s integration with passenger service systems (PSS) and flight planning systems:

1. APM’s Smar­tOps can ingest infor­ma­tion such as PAX num­bers from PSS sys­tems
2. We com­mu­ni­cate with flight plan­ning sys­tems:
—  Send flight infor­ma­tion and pax num­bers received from the PSS sys­tem
—  Ingest flight plans from third par­ty flight plan­ning sys­tems, which auto­mat­i­cal­ly inputs the ETE and updates the APM graph­i­cal dis­play includ­ing the flight sec­tor with fuel infor­ma­tion includ­ing: taxi, take off, land­ing, total trip fuel
3. Users of APM’s oper­a­tions soft­ware can see esti­mat­ed ZFW val­ues*, which have been obtained through inter­nal data and infor­ma­tion such as pay­load, PAX, car­go fig­ures and required fuel received from third par­ty ser­vices

How can this benefit your airline?


• Your air­line can com­pare esti­mat­ed and actu­al fuel con­sump­tion to:
—  detect flights where too much fuel has been burnt and focus fuel effi­cien­cy opti­mi­sa­tion projects on those flights.
—  eas­i­ly see if there are any large dis­crep­an­cies between esti­mat­ed fig­ures in APM and flight plan­ning
sys­tem data.
• Auto­mat­i­cal­ly view the updat­ed ETE’s in the graph­i­cal dis­play with result­ing oper­a­tional impact
• Save time when gen­er­at­ing the ZFW sheet
• Obtain more reli­able data in terms of PAX fig­ures
• Com­pare esti­mat­ed ZFW from SmartOp’s with those pro­vid­ed from your flight plan­ning sys­tem
