Leveraging Climatology and Weather for Fuel Efficiency and Sustainability
Fuel burn represents a significant cost to airlines, and to the environment. This poses a threat to sustainable growth of aviation.
New technology in the cockpit, and enhancements to navigation systems free modern aircraft from having to navigate by ground-based navigation aids.
Flexible Routings and Free Route Airspace, coupled with advanced aircraft and improved technology, allow the industry to harness the power of weather to reduce their fuel costs and CO2 emissions.
Industry research shows nearly 40% savings in CO2 emissions can be obtained through flight path trajectory optimisation. Significant savings (average 1 - 2%) in fuel costs and CO2 emissions can be realised through enhanced flight planning techniques harnessing weather.
Airlines can take advantage of tailwinds in the jetstream, and avoid strong headwinds to reduce fuel burn. This presents exploiting, or harnessing, the weather as a key leverage point in the fight on CO2 emissions and greenhouse gases.
