The said technology is the advanced form of performance-based navigation (PBN) technology, enabling airlines to shorten the flight distance, reduce amount of fuel used and also noise pollution, especially near airports.

AirAsia has been known for its aggressive cost-cutting measures since its days of inception. The news article also reported that AirAsia hopes that it can save up to RM 1 million a year from the technology.

“By achieving significant mile savings, we are able to save on fuel costs and this could be translated to more low fares for our guests,” – Aireen Omar, AirAsia Bhd Chief Executive Officer (CEO)

LANDASAN: The initiative to embark on a new technology is a good move, especially when it involves cost savings. It’s time to other airlines, especially the ailing ones, to follow suit right?
