IATA has welcomed the steps taken by the Mongolian Civil Aviation Authority to help airlines improve efficiency and reduce greenhouse gas emissions.
Mongolia has taken significant action in improving air traffic management infrastructure, through continued implementation of Performance-Based Navigation (PBN) routes.
Air Navigation Service Providers (ANSPs) use PBN technologies to allow aircraft to travel as quickly and safely as possible, optimizing efficiency and reducing aviation’s carbon footprint.
IATA is eager to continue its valuable collaboration with Mongolia
IATA’s initial estimates show that Mongolia’s actions in implementing PBN routes have resulted in annual reductions of 240,000 nautical miles, 24,000 flight minutes, and 2,250 tons of fuel burn, compared to the previous infrastructure.
In a statement, IATA said it was "eager to continue its valuable collaboration with Mongolia, striving to continue to improve the efficiencies of the flights operating in the region—via Mongolia—most of which are long haul."
