easyJet Adopts Fuel Platform to Lower CO2 Emissions
European airline easyJet is implementing a new platform to reduce the fuel burn and CO2 emissions of their fleet as part of its goal to reduce a carbon footprint from flying across Europe.
Under the agreement signed with SkyBreathe®, the fuel management software will automatically collect and analyze the data from more than 300 aircraft operated by easyJet and combine them with data from other sources, including payload, weather conditions, maintenance, flight paths and air traffic control.
The solution will identify the most relevant fuel-saving opportunities and generate insights shared with all stakeholders through synthetic and easy-to-read dashboards. The software allows for the implementation of the most efficient procedures on the ground (pushback, taxi, takeoff, turnaround, etc.) and during flight (climb, cruise, approach, landing, etc.) to maximize carbon reduction.
"easyJet has committed to reaching net zero carbon emissions flying by 2050 and so we are working with a range of partners to reduce our carbon emissions today as well as accelerate the development of carbon-free technology in the future,” said Captain David Morgan, Director of Flight Operations at easyJet in a statement. “The adoption of SkyBreathe® enables us to more easily identify where improvements can be made now, which will play an important role in reducing our carbon emissions with immediate and concrete results. We continue to offset the carbon emissions from the fuel used for all our flights.”
