Jazeera Airways has signed a deal with French cleantech company OpenAirlines to reduce fuel consumption and CO2 emissions with new fuel management software.

Using SkyBreathe, developed by OpenAirlines, the airline will be better able to optimise fuel efficiency across their operations.

Smaller carbon footprint

The cloud-based software will help Jazeera Airways lower fuel costs while reducing their carbon footprint by up to 5 per cent.

SkyBreathe uses big data algorithms, artificial intelligence, and machine learning to collect, analyse and compute billions of pieces of flight data of all the aircraft operated by the airline. It also gathers data from other sources, including payload, weather conditions, maintenance, flight paths, and air traffic control.

Fuel savings

“Jazeera Airways is growing rapidly and recovering quickly from the pandemic. We needed a solid and experienced partner to support our growth as we take on new environmental and operational challenges. We are pleased to partner with OpenAirlines, which has a longstanding experience in fuel efficiency and a great track record in making superior fuel savings,” said a Jazeera Airways spokesperson.

Alexandre Feray, CEO and founder of OpenAirlines, added: “This agreement is fantastic news. There is a lot of momentum for sustainable growth at Jazeera Airways. We are very excited to come on board at this time when it is crucial to take the right turn as aviation transitions towards net-zero carbon emissions. Digital technology is entirely part of the process and Jazeera Airways has fully understood the power of Big Data, AI, and Machine Learning to reduce its impact on the planet whilst still making a profit in a competitive economy.”
