Emission cuts and fuel savings targeted in new Etihad Airways-OSyS Deal

Abu Dhabi: Etihad Airways has chosen Rolls-Royce subsidiary Optimized Systems and Solutions (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 Operations Officer, Captain Richard Hill, said: “Across our global 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.

Mark Goodhind, Vice President of Operations Optimization at OSyS, said: “The OSyS fuel management solution continues to evolve to meet the needs of airline operators, offering a better vision of fuel cost controls within the context of their individual operations. Along with the OSyS emissions monitoring and reporting service, the company’s expertise serves airlines’ goals of achieving a more sustainable business.”
