Alaska Airlines and Horizon Air use Smart LOAD and Smart COMM from Smart4Aviation

We at Smart4Aviation are excited to announce our newest partners, Alaska Airlines and Horizon Air. These award winning companies are renown for their dedication to quality, customer service and on-time performance and it is our privilege to help them meet their newest goal of setting the standard for weight and balance and efficient operations communication.

Through our new partnership, we will be providing our Smart LOAD and Smart COMM applications establishing the worlds first truly exception based weight and balance and load planning system. Our combined vision is to fully automate and optimise the load planning activity, engaging agents only when economic or loading irregularities occur.

Our Smart LOAD system considers cargo compatibilities, dangerous goods limitations and handling, company loading priorities, MEL/CDL limitations, special passenger handling, and most fuel efficient centre of gravity when optimising, ensuring the best operational, and most economic loading solution is utilised.

Through the union of the Smart LOAD and Smart COMM applications, loading restrictions, irregularity handling, and direct communication are no longer challenges for any Airline. And to top it all off, this system is available through web browser, mobility device, or EFB and can even function offline on an individual PC or device during times of limited or no network connectivity.

I am extremely proud that Alaska Airlines and Horizon Air have selected our Smart COMM and Smart LOAD applications to help them achieve their load planning vision. This sales success highlights our position in the North American and the US market, which has been one of our most important goals in the last few years – said Dirk-Jan Baas, CEO.
