(MENAFN - Khaleej Times) Etihad Airways has chosen Rolls-Royce subsidiary Optimised Systems and Solutions, or OSyS to implement a new fuel management solution to maximise fuel use, cut carbon emissions and reduce overall fuel costs.
The deal is part of the UAE flag carrier's continuing efforts to drive environmental and operational efficiencies both on the ground and in the air.
OSyS, one of the world's leading suppliers of aviation fuel optimisation systems and services, will provide the software which will analyse the airline's existing fuel arrangements, allowing Etihad Airways to better prioritise areas where the most effective fuel and emissions savings can be achieved.
Etihad Airways Chief Operating Officer, Captain Richard Hill, said: "Across our network, the new real-time analysis will help us achieve a better understanding about fuel saving opportunities.
It will allow us to more efficiently compare our planned fuel versus actual fuel used on every flight with the overall goals being to reduce fuel consumption, cut carbon emissions and trim our aviation fuel bills."
