Derby, UK, September 18th 2012 – easyJet, the UK-based, leading European airline serving 55 million passengers in 30 countries, has renewed its contract for the OSyS Fuel Management Solution (FMS) for another three years. easyJet was a launch customer for the OSyS (Optimized Systems and Solutions) FMS, which has been instrumental in reporting, measuring and evaluating the fuel savings of the airline’s flight efficiency initiatives.

“The airline continues to adopt and improve upon industry best practice to reduce its fuel usage and to reduce its CO2 emissions” said Taylor Bradbury, Aircraft Operations Support Systems Manager, “The OSyS FMS has allowed us to monitor fuel and fuel initiative data to further improve our operational efficiency. We have recognized the value that the OSyS solution brings to delivering operational efficiencies and have worked closely with them to develop additional functionality. We expect this to continue as we seek to further reduce our fuel costs.”

Mark Goodhind, Vice President of Operations Optimization said,“This is a key milestone in the lifecycle of our FMS. The success of our solution has brought more competitors into this niche; we now have easyJet’s continued endorsement that ours is best-in-class for one of the industry’s most innovative yet cost-conscious airlines. They will be able to sustain the benefits they have realized and work with OSyS to develop new operational cost reductions and efficiency improvements by using the FMS.”

Based on the number of airlines with proposal requests in the marketplace, the importance of fuel management information systems is now an industry imperative. OSyS has somewhat created the market for a better means of quantifying and sustaining fuel savings initiatives. The OSyS FMS continues to evolve to meet the needs of airline operators, offering a better vision of fuel cost controls within the context of their individual operations. Along with the OSyS emissions verification and reporting service, the company’s expertise serves the airlines’ goals of achieving a more sustainable business.
