A study of which methods and measures that can be used to reduce fuel consumption and harmful discharges in an airline.
The study begins with an investigation containing calculations of the differences between estimated fuel consumption calculated by a computer program called Skytrack and actual fuel consumption. Results from this study allows synchronization between actual consumption with calculated consumption.
In addition to this methods and configurations to reduce weight and thus weight onboard aircrafts e.g. carpet exchange, lightweight trolleys and water reduction has been created and analysed.
To bring the study to an end, the author has investigated other methods and configurations which TUIfly Nordic is implementing for fuel conservation.
The study results in several conceivable areas for fuel conservation with calculated savings of 830 000 EUR which for the moment is implemented in TUIFly Nordic.
