Oman Air taps OpenAirlines software to improve fuel efficiency
The software also meets requirements for airline compliance with the European Union Emissions Trading Scheme.
The software is already in use by Oman Air and is expected to be fully operational by the end of September.
"Oman Air is committed to deploying several of the airline’s known best practices across the airline's lines of business including flight operations, flight dispatch, maintenance and engineering and leveraging the software capability and future developments to consistently deliver fuel efficient operations in the years to come," Captain Ali Sulaiman, executive vice president and chief operations officer for Oman Air, said. "Oman Air continues to invest in several frontline operational systems and this additional efficiency layer that OpenAirlines introduces to integrate the multiplicity of our operational systems is an important milestone in this enhancement."
OpenAirlines CEO Alexandre Feray said the adaptability and customization features that can be offered to Oman Air as a cloud-based system and advanced opportunity analysis techniques are an ideal fit to meet the airline's growing needs.
"Our ability to integrate a varied number of airline host systems in fuel invoicing, finance, IT and flight dispatch will allow for an early return on investment and the capability of sustaining the rapid growth of the airline,” Feray said.
