Zurich, Switzerland (PRWEB) September 04, 2014
The Lufthansa group is taking yet another step on its path to increase fuel efficiency and has signed a contract for the use of fuel conservation software developed by Aviaso. The Aviaso/Fuel Efficiency solution will measure and manage the numerous initiatives that Lufthansa has implemented to reduce its fuel consumption. In addition to monitoring current fuel savings initiatives, the software is also able to identify further fuel savings potential.
The importance of fuel efficiency is recognized at Lufthansa and its group of airlines and numerous measures have been applied in a continuous effort to reduce fuel consumption and emissions. In addition to the currently implemented fuel savings initiatives, Lufthansa is constantly exploring further fuel conservation potential. To find the areas where more savings can be achieved, the airline needs to accurately analyze the various factors that influence fuel consumption. To accomplish this goal, Lufthansa decided to implement a specialized software solution and did an in-depth evaluation of all the leading fuel efficiency software products. The Aviaso/Fuel Efficiency solution was selected because it proved to have the most comprehensive set of functions, and allows sophisticated and detailed analyses in a very flexible way. An additional factor for Lufthansa to choose the software was the in-depth know-how about fuel conservation at Aviaso. Currently, the project is in the implementation phase and very good progress is being reported by Lufthansa.
The fuel efficiency software from Aviaso includes more than 100 ready-made analysis reports. These reports allow an airline to thoroughly understand its fuel consumption and to identify potential fuel savings. Furthermore, the Aviaso solution not only identifies the fuel savings, but also helps to really achieve these savings by rigorously monitoring the various fuel savings initiatives for each and every flight.
"Lufthansa is clearly one of the leading airline groups in the world - also in the field of fuel efficiency”, says Rudolf Christen, CEO of Aviaso. "Aviaso is happy and very proud to support Lufthansa in its continuous efforts to further improve fuel efficiency and reduce emissions. I am excited to see the full potential of our product and all its powerful features being used by the Lufthansa group of airlines.”
