Zurich, Switzerland – 24 June 2013 – Aviaso announces the successful implementation of its fuel conservation software at Aer Lingus. The Aviaso software supports Aer Lingus in its comprehensive fuel savings program that saves millions of euros in fuel and carbon emissions.

Anne Bradley, Director Operations Logistics at Aer Lingus said, “Aer Lingus selected Aviaso following a comprehensive and competitive tender process. Our criteria for selection included fuel efficiency know-how, customer focus, flexibility and proven track record in complex software projects. Aviaso provided excellent support throughout the project which helped us to successfully achieve our project goals, despite the demanding requirements.”

The fuel efficiency software of Aviaso receives data from all fuel and flight relevant IT systems of an airline. In the case of Aer Lingus, the data from more than 10 different IT systems is used. A crucial aspect is to have high data quality. Therefore, the data is checked, validated, and possibly adjusted before it is used for analyses. The fuel efficiency software includes more than 100 ready-made analysis reports. These reports allow Aer Lingus to achieve transparency over its fuel consumption and to identify its fuel savings potential. In addition to identify fuel savings, the Aviaso software also supports Aer Lingus in achieving these savings by rigorously monitoring the various fuel savings initiatives for each and every flight.

“Applying the ‘common’ fuel efficiency initiatives is nowadays well established at many airlines. However, it is possible to achieve further fuel savings, as several of our airline clients demonstrate”, observes Rudolf Christen, CEO of Aviaso. “The key is ‘measure to manage’. An airline needs to monitor day-by-day and flight-by-flight which initiatives are making progress and which are not. Such a comprehensive monitoring is one of the key functions of our fuel conservation software”.
