Monarch Airlines selected Pratt & Whitney’s fuel conservation program, EcoFlight Solutions, reaching a 5-year agreement. The EcoFlight Solutions team has already commenced work with Monarch Airlines to develop and implement fuel-saving solutions for the airline’s fleet of 32 aircraft.

EcoFlight Solutions can typically save an airline 3 to 8 percent in fuel costs annually, even for airlines with fuel conservation programs already in place. Pratt & Whitney offers EcoFlight Solutions in collaboration with Flight Sciences International, a leading provider of fuel conservation programs, and Aviaso Inc., a leading provider of fuel efficiency software. EcoFlight Solutions leverages Pratt & Whitney and Flight Sciences International's proven services, including aircraft fuel consumption optimization, EcoPower® engine wash, advanced engine monitoring and line maintenance support -- all of which can help airlines reduce fuel consumption and improve environmental performance.
