About Skymetrix

Who we are and what we do

Skymetrix is on a mission to transform fuel and cost management for airlines so they can maximize success. Success could mean increasing profitability, improving efficiency, staying competitive, or growing sustainably. We use our cloud-based, next-generation platform to do this, combined with our expertise in fuel and cost management best practice.  

Our company was formed in 2021 following the merger of two leaders in the aviation fuel and cost management space — FuelPlus and Airpas. Together, we have over 100 customers, 20+ years of experience in the field, and well-established strategic partnerships with industry bodies like IATA. 

Every year, we manage over 28% of commercial aviation fuel and more than $76bn of direct flight charges for airlines.  

Our headquarters and development center are in Europe, but we operate worldwide, with customers in the Middle East, Africa, the Americas, Asia, and Europe.  

Our vision

Our state-of-the-art cloud-based platform gives airlines a new way to improve fuel and cost management and delivers benefits that are critical success factors for any aviation business.  

By partnering with our customers, we enable them to: 

  • reduce costs, improve profitability, enhance efficiency and gain transparency through powerful reporting; this means they can make ongoing improvements in financial and operational performance over the long term
  • adopt up-to-date processes and technology so they build a robust, scalable infrastructure 
  • manage their carbon footprint by reducing unnecessary consumption and accurately tracking emissions from flights. 

 

All of this provides a strong platform for sustainable growth.  

We are dedicated to our customers’ success and doing what’s right for them. We know that only by making our customers successful can we create a sustainable business. That’s why we work closely with customers to understand their specific requirements, share our experience and expertise, and shape a solution to fit perfectly.
