The International Air Transport Association (IATA), an international air transport association, has announced the launch of IATA FuelIS, an advanced analytics solution to optimise airline fuel consumption, using aggregated and anonymized flight and fuel data.

In a press statement, IATA says that FuelIS has several features for airlines to keep a track of their emissions and fuel consumption. The solution can also make an assessment of fuel efficiency of the entire fleet of an airline. It says that The fuel efficiency of various aircraft types for different regions and times can be analysed by comparing fuel burn per Operational Tonne-Kilometer (OTK) with industry averages.

The tool can also help in benchmarking analysis of airports as fuel quantity at landing can be measured for each aircraft. This can be benchmarked against the aggregated fuel quantities of all other airlines landing at the same airport.

It says that OEMs can also use IATA FuelIS to gauge the fuel efficiency of their aircraft or engines against industry averages, gaining valuable insights into specific markets, regions, countries, and fleet types based on real operational data and helping their customers to use their products effectively.

“IATA FuelIS is a robust analytical tool for airlines to make both strategic and operational decisions to optimise fuel consumption, reduce fuel costs, and improve environmental performance. By enabling airlines to benchmark their fuel performance against aggregated industry data, airlines can understand where they excel and where they need to take action,” says Nick Careen, IATA Senior Vice President Operations, Safety and Security.

The statement adds that IATA FuelIS uses data from the IATA Global Aviation Data Management system and that the data is sourced from the Flight Data Exchange programme which now comprises fuel data from 215 airlines worldwide, sufficient to ensure the highest level of accuracy in the insights that can be derived.

IATA says that fuel currently represents nearly a third of the operational expenses of an airline. Since 2005, IATA has worked with airlines to identify fuel saving opportunities. IATA FuelIS will further support this goal.
