A new feature will combine both of these advantages – the airline will adopt an eco-flying solution developed by OpenAirlines. Called SkyBreathe, this fuel management system collects and analyzes data from the company’s entire fleet, to identify the best fuel saving options. For example, data related to payload, maintenance, flight paths, weather conditions – all of these are gathered from more than 300 aircraft, plus other relevant sources, analyzed and then used to provide the best potential solutions for fuel savings.
This leads to effective operations, where various procedures while the aircraft are on the ground, or during flight, can maximize fuel efficiency, adding up to a 5% cut in carbon emissions. This way, the latest big data technology and artificial technologies are being used to help airlines reach green operations faster.
OpenAirlines has developed this eco-flying software after years of research and development, adding new modules over the past few years. It claims to be the most widely-used platform for eco-flying in the world, with over 50 airlines implementing it as a solution for lower CO2 emissions.
easyJet is also working on the development of new-generation aircraft technology, together with prestigious partners such as Rolls-Royce and Airbus. But, in the meantime, easy-to-implement solutions for fuel efficiency are enabling it to see results faster.
