Remarks of CANSO Director General, Jeff Poole, at the Global Sustainable Aviation Summit 2015

30 September 2015
Speaking at the Global Sustainable Aviation Summit, CANSO Director General, Jeff Poole, highlighted some of the many steps that the air traffic management (ATM) industry is taking to reduce emissions from aviation. He picked three ATM examples from the many ATM case studies in the newly launched ATAG publication “Aviation Climate Solutions”.
 
The case studies are: shortening routes in Europe through the Free Route Airspace initiative; saving fuel and emissions through flying at optimum altitude over the North Atlantic; and reducing delays through time-based separation of aircraft in the UK.
 
Poole concluded by making a plea to States to invest ATM infrastructure; implement the ICAO Aviation System Block Upgrades (ASBU); work better together to reduce airspace fragmentation; and free up military airspace.
