Scandinavian Airlines Ireland Ltd, Irish subsidiary of Scandinavia’s leading airline, Scandinavian Airlines (SAS), announced the successful implementation of OpenAirlines’ SkyBreathe® eco-flying solution to pursue their commitment to sustainable development.

By combining them with data from the actual flight conditions (Payload, weather conditions, flight path, ATC constraints, etc.), the software identifies the most relevant saving opportunities.

Based on this information, SAS Ireland benefits from an accurate and deep understanding of fuel usage through all phases of flight to implement the most efficient procedures without compromising safety. 

As part of SAS Group, SAS Ireland has many initiatives in motion to lower its CO2 emissions and other environmental impacts.

The software will be a great asset to help us achieve our goals.” said Eoin O’Malley, Flight Operations Manager at SAS Ireland.
