Developed by aviation software and consultancy specialists ETS Aviation Ltd, Aviation FuelSaver™ is a high quality, low-cost fuel-performance tracking system. Linked with ETS Aviation’s own fuel conservation consultancy, it delivers significant cost savings by enabling operators to accurately monitor their fuel-saving initiatives and predict potential savings.

Peter van Blokland, Director Flight Technical, said:

“The ETS Aviation team provides highly specialized fuel efficiency expertise. We researched the market and their approach is unique and very cost effective. The Fuel Saving Assessment, conducted by their Fuel Efficiency experts, provided us with a thorough evaluation of our current fuel performance plus an expert and independent view of further potential efficiencies, specific to our operation. The detailed assessment study helped us to measure and enhance our fuel efficiency programme. It provided a clear view on how we are able to improve our flight operations using our operational data powered through the ETS Aviation software.

Aviation FuelSaver™ will provide the entire operation with the ability to measure our success, enhance our processes and evaluate new established initiatives on a regular basis.”

David Carlisle, CEO of ETS Aviation Ltd, said:

“We are delighted that has selected our Fuel Saver Programme. We are attracting major airlines from all over the world because Aviation FuelSaver™ offers a unique combination of software usability and functionality coupled with expert support from our fuel efficiency specialists. The value of the programme provides a very significant return on investment.”

Ian Britchford, Director of Fuel Saving at ETS Aviation, said:

“The Fuel Saving Assessment is the first stage of our programme and delivers not just an independent benchmark of the airline’s current fuel efficiency, but locates potential savings across the spectrum of operations. It also locates the data sources needed to support the software. We do all the hard work and leave the airline in a position to fully evaluate and measure its operational fuel performance accurately and easily.

Until ETS Aviation came into the market, the only software available to most airlines was just too complex and far too expensive for them even to consider and the consultancy rates being charged were exorbitant. The introduction of Aviation FuelsaverTM provides those operators, both large and small, with a top quality, low-cost fuel saving software solution and real airline fuel saving expertise to back it up – exactly what they had been looking for!”

ETS Aviation was formed just 3 years ago and has already made its mark with over 130 operators throughout Europe, Asia, the USA, South America and the Middle East, including large operators such as easyJet and emerging low-cost carrier Tiger Holdings in Singapore. Other recent sign ups to the Fuel Saver programme are Air Astana, the flag carrier of Kazakhstan, and 4 airlines in the TUI Travel Group. The company also supports service providers such as Jeppesen, Colt and World Fuel Services.

The company has developed very fast since it launched Aviation FootprinterTM and its ETS Support Service in 2009 to help operators cope with the demands of the EU ETS carbon emissions data management and reporting. It followed this in 2012 with the launch of Aviation FuelSaver™, the fuel-efficiency programme that also includes a Fuel Saving Assessment and Consultancy Service.
