A memorandum of understanding (MoU) has been signed by Airbus company, NAVBLUE, a provider of flight ops and ATM services, and OpenAirlines, a specialist in eco-flying solutions. The partnership will see NAVBLUE become a reseller partner for OpenAirlines’ solution called Skybreathe, a fuel preservation solution for airlines.
Skybreathe uses Big Data algorithms and automatically analyses the large amount of available data in flight data recorders to assess flights’ efficiency. Results of the analysis are displayed into an interface accessible from a desk computer, laptop, tablet or mobile. Skybreathe will constitute the Optimize module of the Analytics by NAVBLUE suite, which will help operators to save more than two percent of fuel.
"We're very excited about the promise both companies are committed to fulfilling through this partnership," explained Alexandre Feray, CEO of OpenAirlines. ”It is especially advantageous for our current and future customers since the reduction of fuel consumption along with the environment protection and boosting profitability have been on the wish list of airlines worldwide for a long time. NAVBLUE is a leading global provider of flight operations solutions and this close cooperation will help improve airline performance. With our common innovative mindset, NAVBLUE is an ideal partner, and we look forward to working hand in hand with them.” commented Alexandre Feray of OpenAirlines.
