According to African Aerospace, Ethiopian Airlines has selected Safran's SFCO2 service to cover the entire fleet and to aim to reduce fuel consumption.
The service, developed by Safran Aircraft Engines and Safran Electronics & Defense, addresses the need to reduce fuel consumption by analysing maintenance and flight operations.
Fuel accounts for 25-30% of an airlines direct operating costs, and SFCO2 combines Safran Aircraft Engines’ expertise as a aircraft engine manufacturer with Safran Electronics & Defense’s experience in flight data analysis to combat costs.
“This latest agreement extends the partnership we have developed with Ethiopian Airlines over the last thirteen years. We are very proud that Ethiopian has chosen this Safran service, which will considerably reduce their annual fuel bill,” said noted François Planaud, head of the Services and MRO Division, Safran Aircraft Engines.
The carrier will receive personalised recommendations for operational improvements, support to change management measures and access to an app to track its progress.
