Reduces All Three Top Cost Drivers.
Reduced Costs
The Zephyr is the first aircraft to reduce all three top cost drivers at the same time. While reducing fuel burned per seat mile by 26.1%, the lower cost of natural gas reduces the fuel cost per seat mile by 68%. The shorter flight times eliminate the need for multiple crews on the same flight and can reduce personnel costs by up to 83%. The Zephyr’s annual 2,775 million Available Seat Miles would require three current aircraft to achieve.
