GoAir Partners With OpenAirlines to Implement Cloud-based Software Solution for Flight Operations

Budget carrier GoAir on Tuesday said it has partnered with OpenAirlines for implementing the latter's cloud-based software solution SkyBreathe for enhanced operational efficiency and subsequent reduction in fuel cost. The France-based software firm OpenAirlines provides consulting and software solutions for airlines flight operations.

The Indian aviation sector has been heavily impacted by the coronavirus pandemic. As flights take to skies, GoAir avails the opportunity to implement SkyBreathe, an eco-flying solution to improve its operational efficiency, the company said in a release. This partnership will help GoAir become greener while reducing fuel costs and increasing competitive advantage, it added.
Fuel costs account for almost 30-40 per cent of an airline's total cost. Lower fuel burn ultimately contributes to substantial cost savings, GoAir said.

"The biggest challenge for aviation in the future ahead is sustainability, both economical and ecological. Flight efficiency services are an important part of the global aviation industry, helping airlines reduce costs significantly and help regulate emissions," said GoAir Chief Executive Officer Kuashik Khona. OpenAirline's fuel-efficiency solution is currently deployed across 40 airlines and operators of all sizes and fleet types worldwide, said the release.

If an airline harnesses the power of digital technology to reduce fuel consumption, it can improve competitiveness, lower our costs and save jobs, Khona said. "SkyBreathe is flexible enough to integrate with GoAir's existing aircraft systems, enabling fast deployment and the ability to support fleet growth, " he added.
