Brussels Airlines reducing fuel and emissions with AeroTech Services
Brussels Airlines has purchased AeroTech Services' modification to reduce fuel costs and greenhouse gas emissions for the airline's Boeing 737 Classics.
The AeroTech B737 modification has been verified in US FAA Flight Tests to reduce fuel burn, in-cruise, by up to 4%. The modification increases the aircraft's wing area and camber, and lengthens the wing chord, resulting in an increased lift-to-drag ratio; effectively reducing fuel burn and emissions during climb and cruise periods.
Other airlines currently using the AeroTech modification include Swiftair, Quikjet, Donghai Airlines, and Ukraine International Airline. AeroTech Services, Inc., a Reno, Nevada-based company, holds the US Patent No. 6,598,834 on the wing modification for all aircraft. The company markets and sells the modification worldwide to commercial airline operators.
