Dnata to use Amadeus’ automated solution
Dubai, October 30, 2013
Amadeus, a leading technology partner for the global travel industry, has signed a deal with dnata, a combined air services provider, to implement a flight management solution in its centralised load control offices (CLC) in Dubai.
The Amadeus Altéa Departure Control’s Flight Management solution will span all Emirates and flydubai domestic and international flights and over 100 other dnata customer airlines using the system, said a statement.
Under the agreement, Amadeus will provide dnata, which offers ground handling, cargo, travel and flight catering services, with a fully automated solution for managing the weight and balance of all flights it handles from its CLC in Dubai.
The solution is a load control platform designed to enable ground handlers to ensure efficient flight departures and optimise the weight and balance process of all handled flights. It aims to improve the productivity of load controllers, and enables greater precision in the forecast and analysis of passenger and cargo load.
The system automatically defines optimal load distribution, thereby optimising fuel requirements for airlines and increasing uplift capacity of aircraft.
Jon Conway, divisional senior vice president, Airport Operations, dnata, said: “Altéa Departure Control’s Flight Management enables us to provide our airline customers with significant fuel savings. The system’s community and SaaS elements also allow for greater collaboration with our customers. Altea DCS FM is already showing high performance in a centralised load control (CLC) environment,increasing productivity.” - TradeArabia News Service
