Zurich, Switzerland - 28 August 2013 - KLM Cityhopper has signed an agreement with Aviaso for the deployment of comprehensive fuel conservation software to support KLM Cityhopper in achieving further fuel savings.

"We started a thorough evaluation process including all major providers of fuel efficiency software. Our objective was to find the best provider in terms of software and fuel efficiency know-how fitting our requirements", says Peter Derickx, ATM Pilot and responsible for Fuel Efficiency at KLM Cityhopper. "After the review of all presentations in our long list we picked two companies for our short list. In order to find the best software, the two providers had to work with our own data and prove that they can handle our setup. In order to evaluate the fuel efficiency know-how, the companies had to provide a report containing an in-depth analysis of our fuel consumption and an overview of further fuel savings opportunities. We are very glad to say that Aviaso met our requirements and also showed an outstanding way of supporting us with documentation for training. Last but not least, providing us also with a tool that can create not only the basic and standard analyses, but also gives us the freedom to do our own research. The ‘proof is in the pudding’ as we start execution right now. The whole investment shows once more KLM Cityhopper’s continuous commitment to safety, efficiency, and reducing our environmental impact."

The fuel efficiency software from Aviaso includes more than 100 ready-made analysis reports. These reports allow an airline to thoroughly understand the fuel consumption and to identify potential fuel savings. Furthermore, the Aviaso solution not only identifies the fuel savings, but also helps in really achieving these savings by rigorously monitoring the various fuel savings initiatives for each and every flight.

"After we had started the evaluation process it was immediately clear that KLM Cityhopper is already on a very high level with its fuel conservation initiatives", says Rudolf Christen, CEO of Aviaso. "Therefore, it was particularly challenging and inspiring for us to see if it is possible to identify further fuel savings. We were using our software and applying our standard consulting process, and we are very glad that it was possible to identify several areas with additional savings potential."
