Bangkok Airways, Asia’s Boutique Airline, selected Aviation FuelSaver™ to optimise their fuel efficiency programme. The airline joins an increasing number of airlines, both main-line carriers and regional airlines, investing in the capability to accurately measure their fuel efficiency.
Aviation FuelSaver™ enhances airlines’ fuel efficiency programmes by accurately tracking initiatives, identifying savings and communicating that information across the different stakeholders.
Roengrat Yutisart, Flight Operations Engineer and Fuel Manager, Bangkok Airways said:
“ETS Aviation has already provided us with great support for our fuel saving programme both on the detailed review of our operation and the data capture from our aircraft. Their team of experts has helped review use of Cost Index and made many recommendations to improve our flight planning procedures. In addition we are capturing more accurate and reliable data from our aircraft giving us detailed analysis of our operation.”
Bangkok Airways operates a fleet of aircraft on a domestic and international network to famous destinations such as Koh Samui, Chiang Mai, Phuket, Hong Kong, Singapore, Kuala Lumpur, Mumbai and Maldives. Aviation FuelSaverTM will enable the airline to identify and monitor fuel saving initiatives as part of their fuel saving programme. The tool provides full analysis of all the fuel saving initiatives plus aids the flight crew in operation via a dedicated pilot interface.
Ian Britchford, Director of Fuel Saving at ETS Aviation, said:
“It is great to be selected by Bangkok Airways, an awarded airline in Asia. It strengthens our presence in the growing Asia region and it again demonstrates Aviation FuelSaver™’s ability to meet the needs of the regional airlines as well as national carriers. Working with Bangkok Airways demonstrates our ability to work successfully with any aircraft type and proves that fuel savings are important to all aircraft operators”
