Ethiopian Airlines opts for Safran's SFCO2 service

Posted 25 May 2016 · Add Comment

Designed to reduce fuel consumption, the service will be deployed in 2016 and will cover the entire fleet deployed by the Ethiopian flag carrier, based in Addis Ababa.

Fuel is the leading expense for an airline, accounting for 25 to 30% of its direct operating costs. In addition to reducing fuel consumption through technological innovation, Safran is exploring another path via its SFCO2 service, namely the implementation of best operating practices.
 
SFCO2 addresses airlines’ need to reduce fuel consumption by analyzing both maintenance and flight operations. The service combines Safran Aircraft Engines’ expertise as a leading aircraft engine manufacturer and service provider with Safran Electronics & Defense’s long experience in flight data analysis. In short, SFCO2 allows airlines to improve their fleets’ operational efficiency.
 
“This latest agreement extends the partnership we have developed with Ethiopian Airlines over the last thirteen years,” noted François Planaud, head of the Services and MRO Division at Safran Aircraft Engines. “We are very proud that Ethiopian has chosen this Safran service, which will considerably reduce their annual fuel bill.”
