17 airlines, airports, air navigation service providers and manufacturers to test low-CO2-emission flight procedures in real conditions

At the European Aviation Summit on sustainability held in Bordeaux, the SESAR Joint Undertaking formally announced the commitment of seventeen industry partners to testing novel, "green" flight procedures under real conditions. The low-noise and -CO2-emission flight trials are being organised in the framework of AIRE, an agreement between the European Commission and the US Federal Aviation Administration, which aims to develop environmentally friendly air transport operations on transatlantic routes. More than one hundred trials will be performed in 2009.
