Air Traffic Management

ATM & IATA Publications Services Training Workgroups

IATA initiatives in air traffic management have been developed in cooperation with the relevant authorities and air navigation service providers. An even closer working relationship will enable the industry to realize significant benefits.

Environment

Air Traffic Management enhancements could improve airlines' fuel efficiency and CO2 emissions up to 12%.

IATA therefore calls upon governments, airports and air navigation service providers to implement the necessary infrastructure improvements.

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.
