Honeywell Enhances GoDirect Flight to Reduce Air Traffic Congestion in Europe

Honeywell Enhances GoDirect Flight to Reduce Air Traffic Congestion in Europe

  • Honeywell’s new EUROCONTROL route optimization technology achieves over 90% success rate
  • GoDirect boosts flight planning efficiency and reduces stress, costs, and workload for pilots and dispatchers navigating the complex airspace

GENEVA, May 21, 2019 — Honeywell (NYSE: HON) continues to tailor its industry-leading GoDirect services to the needs of operators around the world with the creation of a highly successful route optimization technology for EUROCONTROL routes. The new technology eases the burden on pilots and dispatchers who are tasked with planning flights in this congested and often restricted region, and saves operators both time and money with more efficient routes.

With this technology, Honeywell delivers customers a 90% route-approval rate. Using the new and improved GoDirect Flight planner, customers will save valuable time on flight planning in the European region, while the likelihood of delays and mistakes — and their associated hefty costs — are significantly reduced.

“The European region is a congested and complex airspace, but that doesn’t mean operators and pilots need to settle for the current state of affairs when software, connectivity and analytics can deliver better routes with higher confidence,” said John Peterson, vice president and general manager, Software and Services, Honeywell Aerospace. “With this new technology, we are offering our customers an unparalleled and integrated solution that will increase their success rates with EUROCONTROL, making flight planning much faster and easier.”

With the new route optimization technology, Honeywell’s GoDirect Flight planner aligns to EUROCONTROL’s established business service and ensures that EUROCONTROL’s more than 22,000 unique routing rules and constraints are obeyed, giving pilots and dispatchers peace of mind while optimizing for efficiency.

GoDirect Flight is a part of Honeywell’s GoDirect family, one of the industry’s most complete offerings of more than 50 services and applications that provide business aviation operators, flight crews and maintenance teams with the critical information they need to control their services and network. Combined, these applications improve the overall support service for pilots, dispatchers and schedulers while increasing the safety, efficiency and cost-effectiveness that business aviation operations require.
