The most energy-efficient flying bird


Aviation is taking further measures to meet its commitment for a sustainable future, with the launch of ALBATROSS, a 2-year very large-scale SESAR demonstration project that will develop greener flight operations to be deployed in the short-term.

ALBATROSS is an initiative of major European aviation stakeholders to demonstrate how the technical and operational innovations delivered by SESAR in the past years can further reduce the environmental footprint of aviation towards a more sustainable mode of transportation. The project will explore and then demonstrate in real conditions the feasibility of implementing the most fuel-efficient flights through a series of gate to gate live trials across Europe.

The funding of the project is provided by the EU under the Grant Agreement No 101017678.
