Oman Air implements fuel efficiency software from OpenAirlines

Posted 15 July 2016 · Add Comment

Oman Air has selected OpenAirlines- Skybreathe to provide its cloud-based fuel efficiency software solution.

The solution will provide both predictive and post-flight analysis by fusing a combination of multiple data sources to identify and realise opportunities for fuel savings and track implementation success. The software will also cover the airline’s requirements for compliance with the European Union Emissions Trading Scheme. 

Deployment of the software has already commenced and is expected to be fully operational by end-September 2016. Besides over 100 Key Performance Indicators (KPI) that are currently configured in the software, Oman Air’s fuel management team has identified several of its own fuel efficiency measures, which will be included in the deployment of the software. The OpenAirlines software will support the airline in monitoring and reporting fuel efficiencies as well as significantly boost compliance to maximize the benefits to the airline.

Captain Ali Sulaiman, executive vice president and chief operations officer, Oman Air said: "Oman Air is committed to deploying several of the airline’s known best practices across the airline's lines of business including Flight Operations, Flight Dispatch, Maintenance and Engineering and leveraging the software capability and future developments to consistently deliver fuel efficient operations in the years to come. Oman Air continues to invest in several frontline operational systems and this additional efficiency layer that OpenAirlines introduces to integrate the multiplicity of our operational systems is an important milestone in this enhancement.

He added: "A unique feature is an Electronic Flight Bag (EFB) integration to the Pilot Module MyFuelCoachTM. Managing and optimising fuel costs which remain well over 20% of the airline’s operating expenses is a critical business strategy and we are excited to collaborate closely with OpenAirlines in order to realise these fuel savings as well as coping the terabytes of data that we are now seeing streaming down from our airplanes.”
