For airlines, maintaining passenger safety is paramount, so wintery weather conditions bring a range of challenges... Unnecessary de-icing and anti-icing of aircrafts costs time and money, while failing to correctly predict when de-icing is required, can lead to safety risks, flight delays, and even cancellations.

Actual wing temperature measurements and condition forecast

Aircraft IceGuard supports de-icing decision-making by combining weather observations and forecasts with wing temperature observations and forecasts.

  • Wing hazard overview – Receive warning when wing temperatures below 0ºC, clear ice, (heavy) hoar frost, snow, sleet or freezing rain are expected within the next 24 hours.
  • Location details – Drill down to gain detailed insights of local wing temperature, air temperature, and dewpoint measurements. Gain even deeper insights using the 36-hour and 5-day wing temperature, wing condition and weather forecasts.
  • WMO observations, METAR and TAFS – Access the official airport- specific weather observation reports and forecasts
  • Ensemble prediction forecast 15 & 30 days – Track the long-term weather forecast, including potential variables.

Increase aircraft safety, limit flight delays and prevent unnecessary costs

Our combination of observations and forecasts allows you to plan ahead for icy conditions more efficiently, helping you increase safety and reduce transfer times.

  • Increase aircraft safety Clear ice is hard to observe during inspection of a plane. The clear ice indication alerts improve safety by highlighting dangerous wing conditions
  • Minimize flight delays and cancellations The 36-hour and 5-day forecasts support deicing and anti-icing planning and allocation. Multi-point measurement and modelling identifies local differences across the airport, while real-time monitoring enables rapid response and high-quality local forecasts.
  • Reduce anti-icing costs Wing condition forecasting allows you to optimize anti-icing activities and planning of resources.
  • Decrease your environmental footprint Minimizing de-icing activities reduces your environmental footprint

Sensors on your aircraft's wings provide you with the exact wing temperature data you need to plan your de-icing efficiently and effectively, helping you reduce costs, environmental impact and flight delays.
