[Avionics Today 01-14-2015] Boeing and GOL Linhas Aereas Inteligentes have reached an agreement to implement the Boeing Fuel Dashboard solution across GOL’s Next-Generation 737 fleet. The application provides aircraft operators with a comprehensive total fleet view of operational fuel consumption.
Airlines, business aviation operators, and military organizations can use the dashboard’s decision aids to gain insight into current fuel usage through all phases of flight. This visibility aims to enable better decision-making to reduce fuel consumption, costs and emissions.
“Our airline customers frequently tell us that fuel remains one of their largest cost pressure areas, even when fuel prices are on a downward trend,” said Rick Anderson, vice president of sales at Boeing Commercial Aviation Services. “We have received feedback from current airline customers using Fuel Dashboard indicating an average of approximately 4 percent annual savings in fuel costs.”
