OptiClimb is a service that aims at reducing the fuel consumption through the use of flight data. For each aircraft, data are used to build a fine tuned model that allows to optimize the climb phase. The fuel consumption is minimized by adapting the climb profile.
- Fuel consumption represents 30% of airlines operational costs
- Almost 3% of global CO emissions are produced by air transport
- The annualized passenger figure is expected to reach over 6 billion by 2030
- Fuel consumption during climb is at its highest
How much fuel?
Climb phase is when the engines run close to full power. Reducing fuel consumption during this phase is a real opportunity. The observed fuel saving achieved with our method is around 10% of climb phase. For 100 flights a day on a single-aisle aircraft, this amounts to more than 15 t each day. At the end of the year, the savings are over 4M€.
