Oman Air delivers on its commitment to conservation

Posted 13 February 2020 · Add Comment

In 2019, Oman Air saved 7.8 million kg of jet fuel, which is equivalent to 24.6 million kg of emissions.

 

These significant reductions were achieved by making  light operations more efficient through implementing fuel-saving initiatives and using the latest aircraft  technology.

 

Opportunities to reduce fuel consumption were identified by the airline’s Air Traffic Management and Fuel Conservation teams, which bring together people from across the airline to review all elements of its operations and ensure they are conducted with maximum efficiency.

 

Oman Air’s Fuel Conservation Team includes pilots, representatives from the Ground Operations, Engineering, Flight Operations, Information Technology, Guest Experience and Finance departments. Initiatives taken to further optimise efficiency include adopting fuel conservation best practices and route planning improvements.

 

“A significant part of our commitment to serve our country is ensuring we conduct our operations with regard for the environment. As an airline, we have a responsibility to ensure that we set highest possible standards for fuel efficiency”, said Abdulaziz Al Raisi, Oman Airs chief executive Officer.

 

“This has long been one of our top priorities, both because of our regard for the environment and because increasing overall fuel efficiency also decreases our expenditures for fuel. I’m proud of our teams’ work and results, and we’ll keep working hard to ensure that Oman Air continues to improve and remains one of the world’s most fuel-efficient airlines.”
