  • On January 8th it was announced that SAS Scandinavian Airlines System Denmark-Norway-Sweden has entered into a 2-year agreement for AVTECHs ClearPath service, with an expected start date in January 2024 and an expected total value in the range of 5.0 to 6.5 MSEK dependent on the number of SAS group aircraft and flights operating with the service. The ClearPath flight optimization service, based on state-of-the-art high-resolution aviation weather forecasting from the Met Office, provides precise and tailored tactical decision support for SAS pilots to improve the efficiency of each individual flight. By providing its flight crews with up-to-date guidance on the most efficient flight altitudes, SAS can take maximum advantage of prevailing winds and temperatures to reduce its overall carbon emissions. In addition, ClearPath also warns of turbulence along the flight path which increases the comfort for all passengers travelling with SAS. With the ClearPath service, SAS is estimated to be able to reduce its carbon dioxide emissions by 6,000 tons per year, which is equivalent to the annual emissions of 1,626 Swedes.
