Case Study

Jet Airways is a major Indian airline, with headquarters in Mumbai, Maharashtra. It is India’s largest airline and the market leader in the domestic sector. It operates over 400 flights daily to 76 destinations worldwide. Its main hub is Chhatrapati Shivaji International Airport, with secondary hubs at Delhi, Chennai, Ahmedabad, Bengaluru, Pune and Kolkata. Jet Airways has an international hub at Brussels Airport, Belgium.

The Opportunity
The European Union (EU) has included aviation in the EU Emissions Trading Scheme as part of the initiative to abate global warming. This covers passenger, cargo and noncommercial flights and applies no matter where an operator is based. Non-European carriers also need to comply with the scheme. Carriers that don’t comply face huge penalties and may even be banned from operating in the EU. Jet Airways India needed a solution that would help it automatically and accurately measure its carbon footprint and create reports, with a clear audit trail and integration to various flight and business systems.

What Makes It Smarter

The key to complying with EU emissions regulations is the ability to calculate individual aircraft emissions, a complex process that involves comparing flight records and fuel usage data contained in multiple systems ranging from internal aircraft systems to regional navigation data and flight records. Performing these complex processes manually can result in reporting errors, which can ultimately result in fines for noncompliance with emissions regulations. Jet Airways India now has an automated calculation and analysis process that will provide accurate emissions calculations and predictions, helping it make effective decisions for buying carbon credits and allowances. The system uses rich analytics for annual emissions, regulatory and voluntary carbon offsets, and statistical checks for emissions, drilling down into the many data sources. Instead of fleetwide calculations, the solution can analyze to the aircraft level and even exclude fuel used during maintenance activities. Through robust calculation modules and workflows, the solution will help ensure that all EU flight emissions are properly calculated and reporting is accurate and timely, helping to ensure regulatory compliance.

Real Business Results
- Will reduce time to compliance by 75 percent
- Will reduce reporting errors to help prevent statutory actionby 80 percent
- Will help Jet Airways India gain the ability to make effective and fast decisions for buying carbon credits and allowances
