The Ecotechnologies fund, managed by Bpifrance as part of the Investments for the Future Program (PIA), as well as Safran and Groupe ADP, which operates the airports of Paris-Charles-de-Gaulle, Paris-Orly and Paris-Le Bourget , participated in the operation.

The market

Founded in 2010 by Pierre Jouniaux, former pilot of Vietnam Airlines and investigator at the Bureau of Investigation and Analysis (BEA), Safety Line develops software solutions allowing airlines and airports to optimize their operations in terms of safety and fuel savings. Among the software designed by the young French startup, OptiClimb makes it possible to optimize and reduce the fuel consumption of airliners, while AirsideWatch aims to improve and secure airport operations.

To date, the start-up claims nearly 40 customers around the world. Safety Line has already entered into a partnership with Transavia France, the low-cost subsidiary of Air France-KLM, to use its OptiClimb solution. It is currently being tested by 14 airlines around the world. According to the company, OptiClimb can reduce fuel consumption by up to 10% during the climb phase to cruising altitude.

The objectives of the Start-up

This investment should allow Safety Line to expand internationally. “This fundraising of 3 million euros will allow us to accelerate our marketing and our international development as well as to recruit teams to respond to all the new contracts being signed.», Explains Pierre Jouniaux, founder of Safety Line.
