Manage my fuel costs? | SITA

 
Manage my fuel costs?

Fuel is the largest operating expense for airlines. IATA estimates the airline industry’s fuel bill for 2015 will be US$192 billion, representing 26.1% of operating expenses. Cutting fuel use can have a big impact on the airline’s bottom line. Getting the aircraft weight and payload distribution right, and finding the optimal flight plan to minimize fuel burn, are big priorities.
