The EcoTankering software tool uses the price differences between airports and calculates the optimal additional quantity of fuel that has to be carried for achieving the highest savings at the end of a flight sequence.
The tool takes all relevant factors and limitations into consideration to tell your ground ops and pilot the precise quantity of fuel to be taken extra. For every leg of a flight sequence it indicates clearly how much fuel to block. The saving is provided in percent and as absolute amount.
The final EcoTankering's market testing phase ended in march 2011. The system has proven its significant saving capabilities in live operation. It is now available as a stand alone solution or can be fully integrated into various flight planning systems.
