Airbus has come up with five innovations that could help the aviation industry grow in a sustainable way. Click here to watch the video.
Aircraft take-off in continuous 'eco-climb' using renewably powered, propelled acceleration
It would allow steeper climb from airports to minimise noise and reach cruise altitudes quicker, says Airbus
Shorter runways could be utilised, minimising land use
'Express skyways' on high frequency routes would bring efficiently improvements due to drag reduction and lower energy use
Aircraft would be "self organised" and select environmentally friendly routes
Free-glide approaches and landings would reduce emissions during the decent and reduce noise during the steep approach
Low emission ground operations could be achieved by switching engines off sooner
