21% of flights fail to take off on time. The reasons for delays and cancellations vary, but typically an airline suffers $1K in direct costs per minute of delay and with thousands of flights every day, the cost quickly accumulates. With the increasing costs of fuel and focus on emissions, coupled with the market competition, the pressure to stay competitive has never been greater. Flight margins can be as low as 3% so managing the cost base, monetising capacity and minimising delays all help to protect airline profitability.
Aviation Ground Handling teams deliver and coordinate all the activities to ‘turn’ an aircraft, fully servicing and ensuring the next take-off runs to schedule. It is estimated that for a large airline adding just five minutes of delay per journey can cost the airline up to $35 million (USD) annually.
The industry cannot take advantage of real-time data to optimize operations, such as knowing the water needed for a given flight, or the true available capacity for baggage and to monetize such surplus capacity. This Appian solution is directly addressing the operational and commercial pressures on fleet turnaround across the value chain:
