A delay in a scheduled flight may result in a significant increase in operating costs. It is estimated that a delay will result in an additional cost of approximately 25-75 EUR/min.
Cost reductionFlight delay results in increased costs in relation to crew, passenger and baggage misconnection, aircraft and gate maintenance, etc. In order to reduce time related cost, airlines may in some circumstances be required to accelerate some flights, which results in an increased fuel burn and finally leads to higher fuel cost. S4A Smart MISSION MANAGER allows operators to find the optimal arrival time which will minimize the overall flight cost.
