Total Cost Structure Reduction Of Up To 28.3%.
Reductions In Costs
The Zephyr is the first aircraft to reduce all three of the top airline cost drivers. Burning 26.1% less equivalent fuel than current aircraft and using lower cost natural gas, the Zephyr reduces the cost per seat mile by up to 76%. Shorter flight times eliminate the need for multiple flights crews on individual flights and give airlines the ability to staff multiple long range flights with the same flight crews. The high productivity of the Zephyr allows airlines to reduce flight crew costs by up to 83%. Increased productivity also allows airlines to maintain current capacity with one-third the number of aircraft.
