Boeing announced Wednesday that Hainan Airlines has introduced the Boeing Wind Updates solution into their operations to increase efficiency and reduce fuel consumption across the airline's global operations.
The airline has integrated the Wind Updates offering from Boeing Commercial Aviation Services to leverage real-time information that improves inflight airplane performance based on atmospheric conditions. Boeing Wind Updates will work to optimize flight operations across the Hainan Airlines fleet of Boeing 787 and Airbus 330 aircraft.
Boeing Wind Updates will reduce fuel consumption and improve in-flight performance for the Hainan Airlines aircraft fleets by providing customized, real-time wind and temperature information during every flight anywhere in the world. More current and accurate weather data allows for more effective use of modern aircraft capabilities and is expected to save Hainan Airlines an average of 200-400 pounds (90-180 kilograms) of fuel per flight.
