Royal Brunei Airlines, the national flagship carrier of Brunei Darussalam, has boosted its commitment to environmental protection by partnering with a talented French start-up which provides a 360° solution to reduce fuel costs and CO2 emissions of airlines. Under this agreement, Royal Brunei Airlines will use OpenAirlines' flagship software SkyBreathe® Fuel Efficiency.

Implementation of the software system has already begun and will continuously monitor fuel consumption of each flight operated by the airline to identify the most relevant fuel saving opportunities using sophisticated, innovative algorithms and taking into account actual flight conditions.

The SkyBreathe® solution, which leverages years of advanced research in trajectory optimization and Big Data analysis, will offer comprehensive analytics through 500+ easy to use predefined reports allowing for accurate monitoring of each fuel-saving initiative and will then provide clear results for key stakeholders, project team, and pilots via unique dashboards.

We are thrilled to have been selected by Royal Brunei Airlines and look forward to a successful partnership. As fuel is the largest cost of an airline, it’s a win-win proposition for them. Burning less fuel is better for the environment and for their operating expense. We are currently working closely with the project team and we trust that our expertise will contribute to the growth of Royal Brunei Airlines in a short time.” said Alexandre Feray, OpenAirlines’ CEO.

"We are pleased to collaborate with OpenAirlines, which have already, through their success, demonstrated their ability to deliver on the promise of superior fuel savings. We are committed to adopting fuel best practices across the airline’s business to further improve our fuel-efficient operations." said Zlatko Sirac, Executive General Manager - Operations at Royal Brunei Airlines.

The innovative OpenAirlines Fuel Efficiency software is already assisting 22 airlines and operators across the world to save 2-4% on fuel consumption.
