Malaysia Airlines implements SkyBreathe® to reduce its carbon emissions and improve fuel savings

Malaysia Airlines, the country’s national carrier, in collaboration with OpenAirlines, announced the successful implementation of SkyBreathe® Fuel Efficiency, an advanced system to reduce fuel costs and CO2 emissions of their fleet.

The cost of fuel is the arch enemy of the airline industry and since last summer, crude oil prices have gone up. The spike in fuel prices, generally airlines’ biggest cost, is quickly eroding carriers’ profits and jeopardizing their development.
For this reason, Malaysia Airlines has chosen to adopt the latest digital technology with SkyBreathe® to monitor the fuel efficiency of their operations and improve both economic and environmental performance.

Every day, the fuel management software will automatically collect and analyze the massive quantity of data from the 79+ aircraft operated by the airline and combine them with data from other sources including payload, weather conditions, flight path and ATC constraints.
Using this solution, Malaysia Airlines will benefit from a thorough understanding of its fuel efficiency through all phases of a flight to identify the most relevant saving opportunities. Based on this information they will be able to implement the most efficient procedures on ground (pushback, taxi, takeoff, APU, etc.) and during flight (climb, cruise, approach, landing, etc.) without compromising safety.

Malaysia Airlines joins more than 28 other airlines across the world using SkyBreathe®, including Norwegian, Cebu Pacific, Atlas Air, flydubai, Royal Brunei Airlines and Atlas Air.
