Pegasus Airlines adopts SkyBreathe to improve operational and fuel efficiency | LARA

Pegasus Airlines has adopted the eco-flying platform SkyBreathe, to reduce fuel costs and CO2 emissions from its flights. 

With this agreement, Pegasus aims to achieve significant reduction in fuel consumption – saving on costs and reducing its carbon footprint.

By utilising SkyBreathe, the airline will be able to monitor flight data, analyse fuel-efficient procedures to implement and identify areas of improvement.

Developed by OpenAirlines, this platform uses Big Data, machine learning and AI to analyse data from each flight, allowing airlines to enhance their efficiency. It is also designed to scale with an airline as it grows.

Pegasus Airlines has also adopted SkyBreathe MyFuelCoach and SkyBreathe APM. MyFuelCoach will allow its pilots to make more informed, optimised flight decisions, while SkyBreathe APM will let its maintenance teams to monitor the aircraft performance and keep an overall picture of the entire fleet’s health.

“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,” said Güliz Öztürk, CEO at Pegasus Airlines.

In 2022, SkyBreathe saved 1 million tons of Co2, according to its CEO, Alexandre Feray. Pegasus Airlines’ decision to adopt this platform is a “proud moment”.

“Their decision to embrace three solutions from the platform showcases their commitment to unite everyone in the airline over a shared mission to maximize company fuel savings and reduce the environmental impact of their flights,” Feray added.

Fleet and sustainability growth

Pegasus Airlines is making gains in its fleet expansion plans.

In October, the airline welcomed its 100th aircraft, and is looking to grow to 170 aircraft by 2029.

The low-fare carrier’s fleet is a mix of narrowbody aircraft types, made up of Boeing 737-800 aircraft and Airbus A320neos, A320ceos and A321neos. It currently has a signed agreement with Airbus for 36 new A321neo aircraft to modernise its fleet, further reducing emissions and saving on fuel costs.

It is also making marked efforts to improve its sustainability footprint. Along with this SkyBreathe agreement, in January 2023 it closed its first ever sustainability linked loan for the financing of ten A321neo aircraft, and in August 2023, the airline announced a climate partnership programme with climate tech company CHOOOSE.
