The proposed system pivots around a novel software tool which will run on a computer in the Air Traffic Control operations room

A consortium made up of researchers from the University of Malta’s Institute of Aerospace Technologies, QuAero and Malta Air Traffic Services is currently developing a system to reduce aircraft fuel consumption during climbs and descents within Maltese airspace.

In 2015, 34,283 aircraft movements were recorded at MIA. An A320/B737 class aircraft burnt, on average, some 1.8 tonnes of fuel during climb and 0.4 tonnes during descent in a 30-minute flight.

This generated 5.7 tonnes and 1.2 tonnes of greenhouse gases (CO2) during a climb and a descent respectively, besides producing other emissions such as NOx.
