A proven and unique service offering forecasts of aircraft icing conditions for airports worldwide.
The service also offers a tailored guide to holdover times, and proactive alerts to ground staff to enable improved planning of de-icing operations and reduced departure delays.
The aircraft de-icing forecast service was developed in conjunction with bmi with the aim of reducing delays, improving punctuality and reducing operational costs.
"The Met Office de-icing service has a direct impact on our operational efficiency. One unnecessary night of de-icing can cost in excess of €5000, so it's crucial to have access to accurate forecasts that help us to minimise costs and plan our resources effectively." John Fields, Line Maintenance Manager at Aer Lingus.
Monarch Airlines are one of our customers, find out how we helped them avoid winter icing delays in our case study.
