Jet Airways has tied up with IBM to analyse and calculate individual aircraft emissions
In its bid at creating an energy efficient airline Jet Airways has employed the IBM technology to more accurately calculate, track and report aircraft emissions.
This idea has allowed the airline to use advanced analytics to map the carrier’s carbon emissions, optimising its fuel usage by detailed analysis of each flight. In 2010, Jet Airways had signed a strategic 10-year business transformation agreement with IBM to streamline and consolidate its IT operations.
IBM’s Integrated Emission Management System gives Jet Airways a process to analyse and calculate individual aircraft emissions, which is a complex process involving comparison of flight records and fuel usage data contained in multiple systems ranging from internal aircraft systems to regional navigation data and flight records. The solution ensures that all flight emissions are properly calculated and reporting is accurate and timely.
“In 2011-12, domestic air traffic grew at a rate of 12.9 per cent, creating a huge demand for fuel which accounts for a major expense for any airline. With IBM’s solution, it will help us optimise the fuel usage. This new technology has allowed us to save around $6 billion per annum currently,” Sudheer Raghavan, CCO, Jet Airways, says.
