Together with a number of industry experts, IATA has produced the IATA Technology Roadmap, which provides a summary and assessment of technological opportunities for future aircraft. This publication looks at technologies that will reduce, neutralize and eventually eliminate the carbon footprint of aviation.
By gradually incorporating advanced technology, airlines have made impressive fuel efficiency improvements on their fleets.
Each new aircraft generation brings a step change in technology. New-generation aircraft planned by 2020 are expected to reduce fuel burn and carbon emissions by 25 to 35% compared to the aircraft they will replace just by using new technologies.
