Deicing Optimization

The aircraft deicing landscape can vary greatly from one airport to the next, and is ultimately influenced by a myriad of variables.

The list of potential variables affecting deicing operations at global airports is extensive and airport-specific, and the list includes the following, amongst many others:

  • Nature and severity of winter weather
  • Weather reporting technologies
  • Number of annual deicing operations
  • Airport layout
  • Deicing facilities
  • Taxi and queue times after deicing
  • De/anti-icing fluid holdover time requirements
  • Available real estate for development
  • Local deicing restrictions
  • Airport traffic levels
  • Airport throughput requirements
  • Size and nature of the local air carrier community
  • Air carrier fleet distribution
  • Experience of deicing crews and flight crews
  • Deicing service providers
  • Deicing service model
  • Economic stability of major stakeholders
  • Deicing equipment and vehicle fleets
  • Deicing vehicle attributes
  • Training and management oversight
  • Environmental regulations and concerns
  • Regulatory concerns and oversight
  • Deicing fluid storage facilities
  • Commercial contracts with fluid vendors
  • Glycol mitigation strategies
  • Aversion to change
  • Expansion plans and growth
  • Local challenges and past experience
  • Contingency plans

New technological and procedural developments have evolved significantly and could provide large benefits to airport and air carrier stakeholders.

The full enhancement to the end user of such implementations could be attained when the historical technologies and procedures are coupled with new, innovative approaches in a structured plan, designed based on a thorough examination and analysis of the variables at play at a given airport site, potentially resulting in a compounding of the benefit structures of the various individual technologies and procedures.

Deicing optimization strategies can be developed to provide overall benefits in all areas of the implemented deicing system, or in very particular areas based on specific needs. Deicing strategies can also be phased in over time and developed to provide short-term, mid-term and long-term benefits, with the mid- and long-term implementations funded wholly or partially by the cost savings realized in the short-term implementations.
