Air travel will play an important role also in the future as it connects people all over the world and creates welfare and jobs worldwide, but it also has an impact on the environment. Therefore it is vital short-term to strive to continously lower pollutants from operations and create a more sustainable future for air travel. The aviation industry is actively seeking innovations and new measures that reduce CO₂ emissions. Airlines have a responsibility and a strong commitment to save block fuel consumption and reduce CO₂ emissions.
All measures towards more sustainable air travel are required. Fuselage condensation causes excess weight. Airlines of our times cut weight whereever it is possible.
– Fleet renewal
Fleet renewal contributes most to reducing emissions. New aircraft are more fuel-efficient and consequently emit less CO₂.
– Air traffic management
Initiatives that open up more efficient flight paths to enable fligghts directly from A to B without detours reduce CO₂ emissions.
– Long-term: New aircraft design
In support of sustainable long-distance flights with a different aerodynamic shape built in lighter and material compared to a conventional aircraft. New technologies such as hydrogen.
In order to operate with lowest possible weight a range of operational measures can be implemented. Those include more optimal use of the airspace, and pilots to use the most fuel-efficient procedures. Other measueres include: on-board weight-reduction such as lighter cargo nets and catering trolleys, and iPads for crew documents.
The Anti-Fuselage-Condensation system is one step closer to the sustainability commitment and objectives set by the aerospace industry. Every kg counts.
Airlines are committed to create a more sustainable future for aviation. Cutting excess weight is important to operate with minimum block fuel consumption and CO₂ emissions.
