enable airlines and airports to leverage existing data for safer and more efficient operations .
Saving aircraft fuel during the climb and cruise phases of a flight is a major opportunity to reduce
Safety Line technology helps make flights more sustainable
ITA , A GLOBAL IT provider for
S the air transport industry , has announced it is partnering with start-up Safety Line to help pilots and airlines limit carbon dioxide ( CO 2
) emissions and operational costs by reducing fuel consumption of aircraft at key flight stages .
A flight can be roughly divided into three phases : climb , cruise and descent . Safety Line , a young French company that specialises in predictive Big Data solutions for airlines and airports , has made it its mission to help save aircraft fuel and reduce CO 2 emissions during all these flight phases with a software suite called OptiFlight .
The focus currently lies on the climb-out – the most fuel-consuming phase of a flight – and the cruise phase .
Paris-based Safety Line offers digital solutions that enable airlines and airports to leverage existing data for safer and more efficient operations . The combination of a solid expertise in aviation associated with patented research in data science applications allows Safety Line to offer uniquely innovative and practical solutions , with a focus on better managing risks and reducing fuel and CO 2 emissions .
Improving the cruise phase of a flight
Safety Line ’ s software solutions for the cruise phase , OptiSpeed , OptiDirect and OptiLevel , collectively called OptiCruise , have been integrated in SITA ’ s widely used eWAS Pilot mobile application , which is part of SITA FOR AIRCRAFT ’ s ‘ Digital Day of Operations ’ portfolio .
eWAS Pilot , used by 50,000 pilots of commercial airlines , business jets and cargo airlines , provides accurate 4D weather forecasts and real-time updates from various sources to warn about weather hazards such as thunderstorms , lightning , clear air turbulence , strong winds , icing and even volcanic ash .
Safety Line ’ s OptiCruise allows pilots and airlines to achieve significant fuel savings and carbon emission reductions . OptiSpeed shows pilots the fuel and time impact of speed variations with the objective of on-time arrival
THE SOFTWARE PREDICTS FUEL BURN IN TENS OF THOUSANDS OF POSSIBLE FLIGHT SCENARIOS AND THEN ISSUES RECOMMENDED CLIMB SPEEDS TO PILOTS AHEAD OF EACH FLIGHT .
