Improved efficiency in the ENAIRE network avoids 4,000 tonnes of atmospheric CO2 emissions and saves 1,300 tonnes of fuel


The figures obtained by ENAIRE between January and July show an improvement in the efficiency of the route network, the first consequence of which is a decrease in distances flown, saving fuel for airlines and reducing pollution from air transport. And this despite the general increase in the number of flights compared to previous years.

This increased flight efficiency is the result of the improvements promoted by ENAIRE in its strategic plans (2020 Flight Plan and 2025 Flight Plan), including the optimisation of air routes; the modernisation of airspace procedures, with an increase in the number of continuous descents; the application of new technologies, with support from satellite navigation systems during approaches; and increased civil-military coordination, which boosts the Flexible Use of Airspace.
