SkyWork Airlines AG, Switzerland’s fastest growing regional airline, today announced the selection of ETS Aviation FuelSaverTM to power their fuel efficiency programme. The airline will also be sharing the fuel-saving lessons learned in a presentation at the European Regional Airlines Annual Assembly in Salzburg during 2-4 October.

Aviation FuelSaverTM, created by aviation software and consultancy specialists ETS Aviation Ltd, provides a unique combination of smart software and fuelsaving expertise via a low cost annual subscription.

CEO Tomislav Lang, says: “The Aviation FuelSaverTM programme is the perfect way to manage our fuel-efficiency ambitions. SkyWork’s fleet of Dornier 328 and Dash 8 Q400s is known to be highly economical, but there are always opportunities to become more fuel-efficient. This is important to our customers, to our pilots and operational staff as well as to our shareholders.”

SkyWork Airlines is the first airline operating only turboprop aircraft to have invested in the Aviation FuelSaverTM fuel-efficiency software system which is coupled with independent specialist consultancy. Previously, this level of expertise and software complexity has been too expensive for smaller operators. ETS Aviation aims to solve that by pricing their programme according to the size of the operator.

The logic of the system is based on auto processing and calculation across data from a large number of operating parameters. The system coverts the resulting data into easy to use graphical analysis charts and reports. The end user benefits from accurate monitoring of the operation fuel efficiency, tracking of fuel efficiency procedures and the detection of potential fuel efficiency gains.

David Carlisle, CEO of ETS Aviation, says: “To see a turboprop operator who already flies a fuel efficient fleet investing in our Fuel Efficiency Program, proves its worth. It shows that Aviation FuelSaverTM really can improve operational efficiency for all aircraft operators, no matter their fleet size or aircraft. We are delighted to be working with SkyWork Airlines.”
