Ground handlers Servisair choose Damarel's LodeStone weight & balance solution for Thomson Airways 787 aircraft flight departures from East Midlands Airport…

Thomson 787 Dreamliner

Thomson Airways recently became the first British carrier to take delivery of the all new Boeing 787 Dreamliner! They have five of the new planes to be used as part of their long haul flight programme, delivering even greater comfort to their passengers. 

The complex rules for loading positions in the Dreamliner make it a fairly unique aircraft, with many exclusions based around the mix of container sizes allowed in each bay/section. However, the flexibility of LodeStone made it straight forward to set up these restrictions, making sure that load controllers can achieve optimum loading while staying within the permitted configurations.

LodeStone provides the tools, features and cost savings the modern operation requires. With aircraft weight and balance being a safety critical activity, LodeStone provides immediate visual feedback on limits and exceptions to the operator to ensure safety is never compromised, whilst being one of the most cost effective weight and balance solutions available. Ideal trim lines also make sure maximum fuel efficiency can be achieved, saving money and helping the environment.
