OpenAirlines has been awarded Horizon Impact Award 2020
We are proud to announce that we have been awarded Horizon Impact Award 2020. This is a prize given by the European Commission to recognize and celebrate outstanding projects that have used their results to provide value for society.
Many thanks to the European commission for its support and recognition and to Transavia, Tui Airways, Hop!, and Corsair, our four partner airlines that were participating in the project. We also would like to thank ENAC, FNAM, Envisa, Verifavia and Icon.
In our case this is recognizing how our Clean Sky CARING project has turned into SkyBreathe®, our eco-flying software which analyses millions of flights every year and identifies best practices to save fuel.
The software has been deployed in every continent, with clients including Air France, CEBU Pacific, Flydubai, to name a few. The deployment in lower-middle-income countries provides a means to reduce their CO2 footprint that contributes to global warming. Overall this technology has already helped 40 airlines in 32 different countries to save $US150 million and 590 000 tons of CO2 and continues so on a daily basis thus creating an economic, environmental, and societal benefit and supporting the aims of the European Green Deal.
