Fuel Management

Fuel and Operational Efficiency Business Process Improvement:

 

Over that past six years BAMS Aviation Fuel Specialist Partners  have been involved in assessing more than 70 airlines worldwide through a multi-step process and have prepared detailed reports that recommended adopting some of the best industry practices into the daily operations.

 

The Team has been successful in identifying efficiency improvements that represent from 2% to 5% of the airlines total fuel budget. Actual savings potential will vary depending on the status of the Fuel Program at the airline.

Fuel Management and Operational Efficiency Training:

 

Our Team is presently providing fuel management and operational efficiency training for IATA, AACO and individual airlines. Over 1500 students have been trained in the last 5 years with the audience representing Airline Managers responsible for fuel efficiency, Flight Operations Managers, Flight Dispatchers and Managers from Operation Control, ATC Personnel, Finance Personnel, and Fuel Purchasers. The course can range from one to three days in duration and it is an in-depth review of all aspects of fuel and related efficiency within Flight Operations and Dispatch Departments. This training can be tailored to an airline’s specific needs and the length determined to meet the objectives.
Based on our experience we would expect the airline experience a 1%-2% decrease in fuel consumption after key personnel have attended this training session.

Integrated Operation Control Centre Business Process Improvement

Our Team can assess the present Integrated Operation Control Center efficiency, and identify opportunities for changes to the organizational structure, the decision-making process, operational cost reduction, on-time performance improvement and delay cost management. In addition, the Team can evaluate and recommend flight watch processes and procedures.
As part of the review process, an evaluation and suggested revision of current policies and procedures will be undertaken to strengthen coordination among departments. This will permit informed decision-making processes that will result in cost reductions among departments throughout the organization.

Ground Operations Business Process Improvement:

 

Often overlooked as a key component of a Fuel Management effort, well-coordinated and efficient Ground Operations processes can have a significant impact on the overall fuel efficiency and schedule reliability of an airline. The impact can be direct in managing APU and GSE utilization in the aircraft turnaround process, as well as coordinating operations on the ground to minimize aircraft fuel consumption associated with taxi and ground delays. Indirectly, efficient ground operations contribute to airline schedule reliability, thereby minimizing the need to fly the aircraft at higher than optimal fuel-burn airspeeds to recover schedule.
Our Team can review every aspect of the aircraft ground servicing and movement control process to optimize the efficient use of scheduled ground time and minimize related fuel consumption.

A fully integrated Operations Control process enables an airline to maximize benefits of a well-designed Fuel Management Program. Optimal flight planning, focused fuel management procedures in flight, efficient ground operations and fuel-related maintenance support all provide the required foundation for fuel-efficient operations.

 

However, without a well-coordinated operations control process, many of the cost and operational benefits of a Total Fuel Management program will not be realized.
Our Team has the experience and expertise to support the integration of all aspects of efficient fuel management into a cost efficient operational control process for an airline.
