At Brasilia International airport alone, GOL could potentially save an average of 22 track miles, 7.5 minutes, 77 gallons of fuel and 1628 lbs. of CO2 per approach compared to the conventional paths, totaling more than $24 million in operational savings over five years. Green Skies of Brazil aims to reduce GOL operating costs by at least $100M over five years.
Flight analytics: Provides quality assurance tools and turns flight and operational data into business intelligence. For Green Skies of Brazil, GE’s flight data analytics platform used detailed airspace, airport and airline operational models to evaluate the efficiency of historical flight operations, identify areas for improvement, and quantify the potential efficiency gains. As a result, GE’s Navigation & Fuel Management experts quantified the value of deploying Required Navigation Performance (RNP) procedures to airlines in Brazil.
Fleet synchronization: Provides traffic flow and aircraft sequence management to reduce hold times at landing and increased predictability. GE Aviation was selected by Emirates airline to provide GE’s airline-based flow management system for an 18-month validation at Dubai International Airport. GE and Emirates are working together to optimize traffic flows, reduce fuel and delay costs and improve their hub passenger-connection schedule. The trial is still underway and initial results are demonstrating reductions in arrival and holding delay times. Watch a video on fleet sync here.
