Boeing to help Pobeda save on fuel
Aeroflot’s low-cost subsidiary Pobeda has signed an agreement with Boeing to deploy its Boeing Fuel Dashboard solution, which helps operators cut their fuel consumption. The software has already been installed on Pobeda’s aircraft, the spokesperson for the carrier explained.
Boeing Fuel Dashboard analyzes fuel consumption data fed from a number of sources, including ACARS system, responsible for aircraft diagnostics. Based on the data, the solution forecasts fuel consumption on particular routes and suggests ways of optimization. Fuel saving methods may also be analyzed and applied to the entire fleet.
Pobeda’s spokesperson explained that Boeing Fuel Dashboard will work on the carrier’s fleet of 12 Boeing 737-800s and on any new aircraft the airline will receive under its fleet expansion program. Pobeda expects to save up to 5% of its annual fuel expenses.
Pobeda’s general director Andrey Kalmykov told Russian Aviation Insider earlier that fuel expenses amount to 27% of the airline’s total operating costs.
