As the aviation sector recovers, operators are placing a greater emphasis on enhancing commercial operations and driving sustainability. The International Air Travel Association (IATA) forecasts overall global traveler numbers to reach 4.0 billion in 2024, exceeding pre-COVID-19 levels. Additionally, IATA and its member airlines have committed to net zero carbon emissions from their operations by 2050.
In response to these trends, Honeywell will showcase its airside system, Honeywell NAVITAS, which improves aircraft turnaround times, optimizes uptime for airside operations, and decreases maintenance downtime by up to 25%. Honeywell will also feature its enterprise performance management solution, Honeywell Forge, to support landside operations. Honeywell Forge has the potential to help drive double-digit energy savings in buildings and shift from a reactive to a predictive maintenance schedule.
Philipose Jacob, general manager, Global Airports, Honeywell Building Technologies commented: “The aviation industry’s future path is focused on sustainable recovery. This will require airports to leverage digital technologies that can deliver on priorities of safety, sustainability and efficiency that can also adapt to provide the best experience for travelers and staff. Our technologies can help enhance indoor air quality and provide a seamless passenger experience, whilst supporting regional airports with integrated, safer, cyber-secure operations.”
