OSyS Solution to Drive Fuel Efficiency for Star Alliance Member Spanair

RESTON, Va.--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Optimized Systems and Solutions, Ltd. (OSyS) has won a contract to provide operational fuel usage analysis and management to Spanair, the second largest carrier in Spain.

“The OSyS solution will provide us a better understanding of the complex variables which impact our fuel usage. This will enable us to make better informed decisions throughout the company and help us to maximize our fuel conservation initiatives”

As part of this contract, OSyS will help Spanair meet their “green aviation” goals under the EU’s Emissions Trading System requirements for reducing carbon footprint, by facilitating the airline’s work required for emissions verification and benchmark reporting. Starting in 2012, emissions from all domestic and international flights that arrive or depart from an EU airport will be covered by the EU ETS.

Utilizing the OSyS Fuel Management Solution (FMS) will enable the airline to better manage fuel consumption, optimize fuel efficiency and reduce associated costs, thereby improving overall fuel performance.

“The OSyS solution will provide us a better understanding of the complex variables which impact our fuel usage. This will enable us to make better informed decisions throughout the company and help us to maximize our fuel conservation initiatives,” said Luke Farajallah, COO of Spanair. “Achieving maximum efficiency in fuel usage will help us reduce our operating expenses.”

“Fluctuating fuel costs account for a major part of airlines’ operating budget,” stated Mark Goodhind, Customer Business Director – Aviation for OSyS. “OSyS has been delivering performance optimization services to global aviation companies for over a decade and this contract with Spanair will help to ensure they optimize fuel efficiency now and for the long term. With a combination of data quality management, expert analysis and reporting, the OSyS solution delivers the potential for 2 to 5 per cent fuel savings for our customers.”

Airlines are increasingly focused on operational cost reduction as a means to a healthy balance sheet. OSyS’ fuel management solution enables airlines with any size fleet to reconcile actual operational fuel usage against plan, quantify good and bad practices, and communicate them throughout the organization to effect positive change.

Spanair is a new customer for OSyS, adding a member of the Star Alliance network to the company’s growing customer base.
