(MENAFN - Khaleej Times) Australia's air traffic management provider Airservices Australia and Emirates airline last week marked the 10-year anniversary of the Flex Tracks programme for flights between Emirates' Dubai hub and its Australian network.



The ground-breaking initiative highlights the practical benefits when airlines implement smart air traffic management and use powerful tailwinds to reduce fuel burn, carbon dioxide emissions and journey time.

Over the last 12 months, Flex Tracks has saved over 3,800 tonnes of fuel on Emirates' daily flights to Adelaide, Brisbane, Melbourne, Perth and Sydney, and has reduced CO2 emissions by more than 12,000 tonnes. The fuel saved could fill the tank of a Holden Commodore 65,000 times and the CO2 saved would fill the Sydney Opera House Concert Hall 830 times. Also this year, the system has reduced Emirates' flying time to Australia by an equivalent of 16.5 days.

Tim Clark, president of Emirates airline, said: "Airservices Australia's Flex Tracks solution has been an important part of our flight planning activities for 10 years and continues to provide noticeable results."

Airservices executive general manager for Air Traffic Control Greg Hood said: "Airservices publishes Flex Track information for airlines flying into and out of Australian airspace to enable them to make the most of prevailing weather patterns and winds."
