Zurich, Switzerland – 11 Jul 2014 – Europe Airpost has signed a contract for the use of the fuel conservation software developed by Aviaso. The Aviaso/Fuel Efficiency solution has been selected by Europe Airpost to support the Paris-based airline in further reducing its fuel consumption and carbon emissions. The Aviaso software is also providing Europe Airpost with automated data collection, integrated data quality routines, and comprehensive reporting, for full compliance with the European Union Emissions Trading System legislation. With the introduction of the Aviaso software, Europe Airpost is taking the next step in implementing its sustainable development strategy that already includes programs such as: fleet modernization, introduction of EFB, optimization of take-off and landing performance, introduction of non-polluting electrical ground power units, etc.
“After the launch of our ECO2 project, that has already reduced our annual fuel consumption by more than 2%, we are ready to take the next step and discover more ways to save fuel.” says Philippe Lonnoy, Director of Flight Operations of Europe Airpost “We were looking for a software solution that not only helps us to accurately monitor our ongoing initiatives but also allows us to discover further fuel savings potential. We started a thorough evaluation process and talked to all major vendors of fuel efficiency and EU-ETS software. Our final choice was Aviaso, since their solution very much convinced us in terms of functionality, ease of use, and flexibility to adjust to our operations and our IT systems. It was also important for us to see that the software is already in use at several other mid-size and large airlines.”
The fuel efficiency software from Aviaso includes more than 100 ready-made analysis reports. These reports allow an airline to thoroughly understand their fuel consumption and to identify potential fuel savings. Furthermore, the Aviaso solution not only identifies the fuel savings, but also helps in really achieving these savings by rigorously monitoring the various fuel savings initiatives for each and every flight. In addition, the software also provides comprehensive reporting to ensure full compliance with the EU Emissions Trading System legislation.
“We are delighted and grateful to have our first French airline customer with Europe Airpost”, says Rudolf Christen, CEO of Aviaso. “It will be challenging to further reduce the fuel consumption in an airline like Europe Airpost which is already on a high level of implementing fuel conservation initiatives. Therefore, we are looking forward to deploying our software at Europe Airpost and applying the comprehensive analytical capabilities of the tool to identify additional fuel savings.”
