Air Tahiti Nui chooses SkyBreathe to increase fuel efficiency

Air Tahiti Nui and OpenAirlines have signed a contract to implement the software SkyBreathe Fuel Efficiency in order to allow the airline to save 2.0 to 5.0 percent fuel consumption, the company said.

The company said air transport is responsible for more than 2.0 of CO2 emissions worldwide as well as 30 percent of an airline costs.

Big Data and smart algorithms allow the software to gather and analyze large amount of available data in flight data recorders, Maintenance data, flight plan software and OCC to compute accurately each flight consumption and indicate opportunities to save more fuel, based on the airline SOP´s and best practices.

In May 2015, Air Tahiti Nui announced its intention to replace its entire fleet, currently consisting of five Airbus A340-300s. They will be replaced by four more fuel efficient Boeing 787-9s.

Air Tahiti Nui was established on 31 October 1996 and commenced flight operations on 20 November 1998. The government of French Polynesia is the major shareholder (84.4 percent) along with other local investors.

OpenAirlines was founded in Toulouse, France, in 2006 to meet the needs of airlines to optimize their flight operations and reduce their costs.
