Pegasus Airlines makes moves to improve its carbon footprint

Pegasus Airlines says it is taking steps to enhance its operational efficiency and environmental commitments by adopting OpenAirlines’ SkyBreathe 360° eco-flying platform. 

With this partnership, the airline will be able to monitor flight data, implement new fuel-efficient procedures and identify areas of improvement.

By leveraging this data-driven approach, the Turkish low-cost carrier aims to achieve significant reductions in fuel consumption, leading to both financial savings and a notable decrease in its carbon footprint.

Güliz Öztürk, CEO of Pegasus Airlines, said: “We are delighted to announce our partnership with OpenAirlines and the adoption of the SkyBreathe platform.

“This partnership reflects our determination to leverage advanced technology to enhance our fuel efficiency and operational practices while contributing to our 2050 net zero emissions target and our numerous initiatives as we continue moving towards a sustainable future.”

Pegasus said this partnership marks a significant milestone in its ongoing efforts to enhance its fuel management programme. 

The SkyBreathe 360 eco-flying platform, developed by OpenAirlines, utilises sophisticated Big Data algorithms, machine learning and artificial intelligence to analyse data from each flight and provide actionable insights, allowing airlines to enhance fuel efficiency strategies and reduce their consumption.

The platform is designed to scale with the airline throughout its fuel efficiency journey, increasing collaboration and shared responsibility – and promoting a green culture to deliver superior fuel savings.

Alexandre Feray, CEO of OpenAirlines, added: “The addition of Pegasus in the SkyBreathe community is a proud moment for us. Their decision to embrace the platform showcases their commitment to unite everyone in the airline over a shared mission to maximise company fuel savings and reduce the environmental impact of their flights.

“In 2022, SkyBreathe successfully saved one million tons of CO2, showcasing its remarkable ability to propel change within the industry. With our tools, Pegasus Airlines can confidently achieve considerable cost and CO2 savings, further contributing to a more sustainable aviation future.”
