Sikora, I. (1998). Medium Range Aircraft Fuel Policy in the Light of Available Software, and Knowledge in the Industry. Paper presented at the KoREMA,1998, 25 - 28 Nov 1998, Stubicke Toplice - Graz - Vienna, Croatia-Austria.

Abstract

The rational use of fuel in aviation industry together with the improved operational safety level and productivity are common and permanent goal that all airlines in the world strive to achieve. Different environmental influences and constraints affect each of them through multiple layers of activities. The constant awareness of them and mastering equipment airline exploits make reaching those goals more viable. Croatia Airlines is the sole Croatian scheduled air carrier. Being major consumer of fuel and having in mind international sense that air transportation has Croatia Air-lines has to obey worldwide applied criteria. Paper lists environmental influences together with airline characteristics that make fuel policy so important factor. It compiles theoretical foundation together with methods used in formulating fuel policy. Operational data and its use for deriving one of the indicators related to medium range aircraft fuel consumption are listed at the end.
