As part of establishing a baseline for air traffic management performance and carbon emissions, the INSPIRE partners have undertaken a series of flights to demonstrate and measure gate to gate emissions and fuel savings using Air Traffic Management environmental best practice.
Each of the flights utilised Air Traffic Management best practices to reduce fuel burn and the impact on the environment.
Working closely with airline partners, South African Airways, Emirates Airlines and Etihad Airways and Virgin Australia, INSPIRE will measure the efficiency of every aspect of the flight from gate to gate.
The INSPIRE partners ensured that wherever possible, constraints were removed.
The data gathered from each flight will be used as a benchmark for implementing efficient and environmentally procedures across the Arabian Sea and Indian Ocean.
