DUBAI, United Arab Emirates – November 16, 2021 – At the Dubai Air Show, GE Digital announced its Fuel Insight Benchmarking program for operators to understand how to maximize fuel use and reduce carbon emissions. Current Fuel Insight customers can save an average of half ton of CO2 per flight.

Part of the Fuel Insight digital suite which includes Fuel Essential and Fuel Mainline software packages, the benchmarking will leverage proprietary analytics algorithms to monitor fuel efficiency and deliver data-driven insights for identifying and implementing sustainable fuel efficiency initiatives. Fuel Insight helps airlines take fuel efficiency and sustainability further by helping prioritize efforts around initiatives that offer the highest attainable savings potential. Using industry benchmarks and advanced analytics, the software uncovers efficiency opportunities so operators can identify ways to save and track the rates of procedure adoption across their fleet with speed and accuracy.

The Fuel Insight Benchmarking program provides a set of opt-in dashboards that allow operators to understand how their performance compares to other operators. Initially, the program will roll out for common fuel savings procedures like single engine taxi and idle reverse thrust.

Data will be combined, aggregated, and deidentified using methodologies designed to prevent an individual operator’s data from being exposed. The data will be delivered to all customers that opt-in as a dashboard, as GE Digital adds more airlines to this program a greater fidelity of data will be delivered. Through this data, airlines will be able to understand their operations in relation to their industry peers so that they know what truly best in class looks like around the world. This program allows immediate impact for airline sustainability programs with fuel savings procedures that can be done today.

“Reducing fuel use and carbon emissions is a critical KPI for operators around the world and we are in the unique position of being able to help immediately,” said Andrew Coleman, General Manager for GE Digital’s Aviation Software business. “This benchmarking program will help airlines reduce fuel overuse, yielding increased savings as oil prices continue to escalate, all while lowering our industry’s CO2 footprint. We are ready to help our customers meet and achieve their stated sustainability goals.”
