Norwegian announced agreement with OpenAirlines
09 Oct 2018 - SkyBreathe integrates multiple sources of data in a single database and computes achieved and potential savings taking into account the exact flight conditions, such as weather, flight path, Air Traffic Control, payload.

TOULOUSE, France - The world's fifth largest low-cost airline, Norwegian, selected OpenAirlines' solution to save fuel and reduce carbon dioxide emissions for all its operations. Under the agreement, OpenAirlines will continuously analyze the data of 600 daily flights operated by 157 aircraft, by deploying its eco-flying solution SkyBreathe Fuel Efficiency.

SkyBreatheFuel Efficiency is an innovative cloud based software solution, which features an Artificial Intelligence engine with cutting-edge algorithms to automatically analyze large amounts of flight data and assess operational efficiency improvements at fleet, route, and individual flight stage level.

SkyBreathe integrates multiple sources of data in a single database and computes achieved and potential savings taking into account the exact flight conditions, such as weather, flight path, Air Traffic Control, payload. It generates insights, which are shared with all stakeholders through synthetic and easy-to-read dashboards. Pilots can visualize their actual flights in 3D and get feedback on each fuel saving best practice via a dedicated user-friendly mobile app.

In September 2018, Norwegian has once again been rated the world's most fuel-efficient transatlantic airline by the International Council on Clean Transportation (ICCT). "We are proud to operate the newest and greenest fleets in the world. High fuel-efficiency is not only good for the planet, but also for our business and customers' wallet. We are pleased to collaborate with OpenAirlines, which have already demonstrated their ability to provide superior fuel savings. With this system we anticipate to reduce our fuel consumption by at least 2%," said Tomas Hesthammer, Director Flight Operations at Norwegian.

"We enjoy a close working relationship with Norwegian and are honored to be selected by such a leader in its markets, no less exemplary in environmental protection. Norwegian has reduced its emissions per passenger kilometer by 30 percent since 2008 through investments in newer, more fuel-efficient aircraft. As a forward-thinking company, they have well understood the power of digital transformation to build a fuel-conscious culture across all the operations teams," commented Mr. Alexandre Feray, OpenAirlines CEO.

"By leveraging Big Data to better understand operations, Norwegian can further reduce their cost and increase their competitive advantage. Fuel conservation is at the crossroads of Flight Operations, with several stakeholders. Only a shared, data-driven and factual analysis, easily understood by all parties can support the required transformation to save fuel. With its 3D visualization, predefined reports and custom analysis, SkyBreathe not only allows Norwegian to understand its fuel consumption but also supports the definition of improvement initiatives and simplifies the monitoring of these initiatives deployment."

Rewarded by many innovation awards, OpenAirlines is today the leading provider of fuel efficiency solution with the highest number of references in the market. SkyBreathe is now used by a very active community of 30+ airlines around the world including Malaysia Airlines, Norwegian, Cebu Pacific, Flydubai and Atlas Air.
