In addition to determining optimal routing and cost-effectiveness, new route structures and flight procedures submitted to us are also reviewed for possible reductions in length and noise emission. Efficient flight handling leads to less fuel consumption and reductions of greenhouse gas emissions. One example: Greener Wave
European regulatory authorities have implemented stringent requirements on air transport to reduce greenhouse gas emissions. Air navigation service providers are required to meet specific ecological objectives under the Single European Sky programme.
We increase efficiency gains by working closely with our domestic and international partners to devise tools and procedures that further improve overall system performance while minimising its environmental impact. Concrete operational measures include:
