OPTIMA, technology to put an end to empty legs

November 4, 2023

Business aviation is a mode of transport with very high added value, particularly in terms of the opening up it enables, but it also has a high carbon impact.

In addition to the "product" investments that the sector is making on a massive scale, two "usage" decarbonization levers can be implemented in the short term to increase profits tenfold and reduce the global carbon footprint.

Currently, 40% of flights are empty or with an average occupancy rate of only 25%. Moove is investing to offer direct and wide distribution to professionals with its innovative booking and flight-sharing tools to increase the load factor of corporate flights, and commercial empty legs.

With financial support from the Ile de France region and BPI via the Innov'up program, Moove will develop technological building blocks to reduce the environmental impact of flights departing from the Ile de France region, which boasts Europe's largest business airport.

In partnership with Europe's largest corporate airline and commercial operators at the Le Bourget hub, Moove hopes to save 80 TeCO2 and boost corporate productivity by €5.5m by filling 10% of available flights and empty seats by 2025.

> CABIN OPTIMA: Within a corporate airline, an integrated community platform can encourage colleagues to share flights internally. Sharing flights helps avoid other road or air journeys, and of course improves productivity thanks to the associated time savings.

> LEG OPTIMA: Increasing the probability of reselling an empty leg requires a significant increase in the supply/demand balance. By drastically increasing the distribution area via NDC distribution within consumer booking platforms, Moove hopes to reduce the number of empty legs and the number of flights required.
