Following tradition, number of French and foreign politicians and business leaders visited the famous Paris Air Show 2015 held from June 15 to 21, 2015 in Paris – Le Bourget. In this 51st edition, Safety Line had the pleasure of welcoming French President François Hollande and French Minister of Economy Emmanuel Macron at its booth.

This service aims at optimizing the flight climb profile and thus reduce the airliners’ fuel consumption. It answers both the economical and environmental stakes of the air transport sector.

Since the climb phase of flight represents the largest part of fuel consumption, substantial economies (120 kg of kerosene per flight) could be realized merely by varying the climb speed instead of adopting a constant speed. This could represent savings of €30 million per year for an airline that operates 1,000 daily flights. A first operational experimentation is under progress with the airline Transavia France. The results will soon be communicated.

Safety Line also entered into discussions with Boeing. “The long term objective is to introduce the solution into the flight management system so that the aircraft automatically follows the ideal climb profile” clarifies Pierre Jouniaux, Safety Line’s founder and CEO. Contacts have also been made with Airbus, a member of Starburst Accelerator Selection Committee.
