Low-cost carrier Pegasus Airlines has chosen the SkyBreathe 360° eco-flying platform to reduce fuel costs and CO2 emissions from its flights.
The airline will now be able to monitor flight data, analyse various fuel-efficient procedures to implement, and identify areas of improvement.
By leveraging this data-driven approach, Pegasus Airlines says it aims to achieve significant reductions in fuel consumption, leading to both financial savings and a notable decrease in its carbon footprint.
Developed by OpenAirlines, the SkyBreathe® 360° eco-flying platform utilises sophisticated big data algorithms, machine learning, and artificial intelligence to analyse numerous data from each flight and provide actionable insights, allowing airlines to enhance fuel efficiency strategies and reduce their consumption.
Pegasus Airlines says the platform is designed to scale with the airline throughout its fuel efficiency journey, increasing collaboration and shared responsibility and promoting a green culture to deliver superior fuel savings.
The airline has also chosen to use SkyBreathe® MyFuelCoach to further support its pilots in this initiative.
The mobile application will be used to empower pilots with data they can trust to make more informed flight decisions.
With a fleet now reaching 105 aircraft, Pegasus Airlines has also decided to adopt SkyBreathe® APM, enabling maintenance teams to continuously monitor aircraft performance with an up-to-date view of the entire fleet’s health, receive notifications about unusual deterioration, identify root causes, and take corrective action.
Güliz Öztürk, chief executive at Pegasus Airlines, said: “We are delighted to announce our partnership with OpenAirlines and the adoption of the SkyBreathe® platform.
“This partnership reflects our determination to leverage advanced technology to enhance our fuel efficiency and operational practices while contributing to our 2050 net zero emissions target and our numerous initiatives as we continue moving towards a sustainable future.”
Alexandre Feray, chief executive at OpenAirlines, said: “The addition of Pegasus in the SkyBreathe® community is a proud moment for us.
“Their decision to embrace three solutions from the platform showcases their commitment to unite everyone in the airline over a shared mission to maximise company fuel savings and reduce the environmental impact of their flights.
“In 2022, SkyBreathe® successfully saved one million tonnes of CO2, showcasing its remarkable ability to propel change within the industry.
“With our tools, Pegasus Airlines can confidently achieve considerable cost and CO2 savings, further contributing to a more sustainable aviation future.”
