Boost your fuel team productivity with SkyBreathe® Advisor

Make better decisions and prioritize fuel-saving initiatives with the highest value using our brand-new Advisor AI assistant.  

Are you finding it challenging to unlock the full potential of your flight data? Are you unsure of the exact steps to take to make significant fuel savings? Many airlines face these same questions.  

But with the right approach and tools, you can turn data into actionable insights and achieve remarkable improvements in fuel efficiency.  

We believe in AI specially designed for Air Transportation Fuel Efficiency. Let's explore how you can leverage AI to find the right opportunities to save fuel with SkyBreathe® Advisor.  

Flight analysis powered with AI  

Fuel is the #1 cost for an airline, typically representing around 30% of operational expenses. With the rising cost of kerosene and the target set by IATA to achieve net-zero carbon emissions by 2050, airlines are under immense economic pressure.  
 
To meet emissions reduction goals and reduce operational costs, airlines must adopt a multifaceted approach that prioritizes improving fuel efficiency, investing in sustainable aviation fuels (SAF), and leveraging technological advancements. AI is emerging as a pivotal technology, offering innovative tools that significantly enhance operational productivity and, in this case, can help airlines boost their fuel efficiency program

The work behind data analysis

Airlines continuously collect vast amounts of data from their flights, providing a wealth of valuable information. By analyzing this data, fuel teams can uncover elements needed to improve operations and boost fuel efficiency. However, this process is often long and time-consuming due to the sheer volume and complexity of the data involved. Manually sifting through data to extract meaningful patterns and actionable insights requires significant effort and resources, which can slow down the fuel-savings progress.

Overwhelming right?   

 That's where AI-powered analytic tools can make the process much more efficient.

 

💡 How does AI work 

AI operates by analyzing historical data to learn and predict outcomes. Most of AI's existing techniques are based on learning from data sets to reproduce patterns, so AI needs a lot of data to work.  

The more data you have, the more accurate its predictions will be. 

When it comes to fuel efficiency, data accuracy is key when sharing eco-flying recommendations with pilots and other stakeholders.  It's essential that the information shared reflects the truth of what happened during a flight. It strengthens their trust and engagement. 

 

AI-Powered Fuel efficiency  

AI-based features have a lot to bring to the aviation sector. But generic mainstream techniques won’t fit the airlines' needs. We believe specialized AI, designed for air transportation fuel efficiency, can accelerate our Net Zero journey, offering robust, data-driven solutions that enhance operational performance, reduce costs, and support aviation sustainability. 

Leveraging its powerful data analysis and synthesis capabilities, specialized AI is exceptionally well-suited to finding tendencies, disruption, or hidden statistics, and can be a great support in back-office flight analysis. 

By integrating AI technologies into their fuel teams, airlines can optimize flight planning, predict fuel requirements more accurately, and identify real-time opportunities for fuel savings. This not only boosts the productivity of fuel management teams but also drives substantial cost reductions and supports sustainability efforts.

Let’s take the example of SkyBreathe® Analytics  

SkyBreathe® uses performance-based models trained on the world’s largest fuel efficiency dataset. The tool computes savings on each flight using sophisticated algorithms based on both physics and AI models, trained on thousands of flights and considering the actual operational environment (ATC, weather…). This is the foundation of this powerful tool that helps airlines analyze their data and find ways to improve their fuel efficiency. 

 But it gets even better...

"AI has always been an essential element of the SkyBreathe
® 360 fuel efficiency platform; it's a part of our DNA. But sometimes, it can be challenging for customers to figure out how to get the most out of data, what steps they should take, and where they should start. In addition to computing accurate metrics, AI also brings new ways of analyzing the data.

Traditional data analysis methods are powerful but require manual effort and time to derive insights from vast datasets. That's why we integrated SkyBreathe Advisor: to help airlines better utilize their data and give them tools to more easily identify areas where significant progress can be made".
