Emirates Airline has selected Avtech Middle East to help the Dubai-based carrier in the area of Performance Based Operations (PBO). The Emirates FLOW-project is expected to result in more effective air traffic flow and capacity management, as well as reduced fuel consumption and CO2 emissions. The system will allow Emirates to, initially starting from two hours from Dubai, strategically sequencing aircraft based on business and operational requirements. The expected result of the project will be that Emirates aircraft, which account for a large percentage of the traffic to Dubai International, are sequenced correctly from an airline business standpoint as well as for ATC prior to entering UAE airspace, Avtech said.
