Jeppesen, a unit of Boeing Flight Services, has introduced a new web-based runway analysis service to provide operators with flight-critical airport, runway and aircraft performance information.

The new service helps reduce costs and improve operations through accessing flight information for specific aircraft at all available worldwide airports in a digital format.

The solution provides individual takeoff and landing performance calculations developed from comprehensive airport, runway and obstacle databases, and specific aircraft performance data from aircraft manufacturers.

It calculates a specific aircraft at a given runway, with specific temperature, wind and runway conditions around the world.

By using the new tool, operators will also be able to conduct several aircraft and airport calculations at the same time using the enhanced runway analysis service.

Detailed obstacle information in the departure path of airport runways and special departure procedures for each runway have also been included to help pilots avoid obstacles and climb to a required altitude in the event of engine loss.
