ABSTRACT
The article announces that the International Air Transport Association signed a three-party commitment to a Flight Efficiency Plan with Eurocontrol and Europe's Civil Air Navigation Services Organization in 2008. The plan's objective is to expedite efficiency improvements in European air traffic management to achieve annualized savings of 470,000 metric tons of fuel per year in a six-month work program. If successful, this will save 390 million and reduce carbon dioxide emissions by over 1.5 million tons.
