Towards flexible routings

We are working with key stakeholders to introduce more flexible routings. This initiative, called iFLEX, will bring significant reduction in flight time on long haul, resulting in reduced fuel burn and emissions, in addition to obvious commercial benefits. iFLEX is currently on trial on a few routes. Find  out how to join the iFLEX initiative.
