Cathay Pacific signs up to a new efficiency service solution from Rolls-Royce

Monday, 7 December 2015

Cathay Pacific, the home airline of Hong Kong, is further extending its partnership with Rolls-Royce, with a new Efficiency Service Solution to reduce fuel consumption.

Under a five-year agreement, Rolls-Royce will analyse the flight data of 189 aircraft operated by the airline and its wholly owned subsidiary Dragonair.

Rolls-Royce will deliver this service by deploying its fuel management tool, VisiumFUEL, which uses sophisticated visualisation and advanced analytics to deliver operational efficiency improvements at the fleet, route and individual flight stage. This service complements the existing TotalCare® long-term service agreements with Cathay Pacific.

Rolls-Royce has a long history of working closely with customers on fuel data consumption and management, using its deep understanding of airline requirements and operations. Fuel is a significant factor in airlines’ operations, accounting for 35-40 per cent of their operational cost.

Mark Hoey, Cathay Pacific, General Manager Operations, said: “We are very pleased to reinforce our partnership with Rolls-Royce through this new fuel agreement. We are looking forward to the benefits of using Rolls-Royce’s expert consultancy and software to further optimise our growing operations.”

Andrew Hutson-Smith, Rolls-Royce, Senior Vice President Customer - Controls and Data Services, said: “We are delighted that Cathay Pacific continues to put their trust in our Efficiency Services Solutions, and selected VisiumFUEL amongst others. This new agreement stands as testimony to our capability and the confidence that Cathay Pacific puts into Rolls-Royce to deliver.”

Rolls-Royce Efficiency Service Solutions have been developed to help customers better understand and manage their operations, with the aim of reducing their overall costs, through a data-driven approach incorporating data collection, analytics, consultancy, line maintenance and technical services.

Visium™ is Rolls-Royce’s suite of intelligent platforms which underpins the TotalCare Service Solutions, covering a wide range of applications; from fuel, fleet and emissions management, to equipment monitoring and safety, quality and risk management.
