Benefits include a reduction in flight planning restrictions and the creation of several shorter flight-plannable route options. Simulations predict that, on the basis of pre-pandemic traffic, the change will bring a weekly CO2 saving potential of 6,700 kg and offer flight-plannable gains of 280 NM. These savings are either directly achievable through explicit changes in the European Route Availability Document (RAD) or readily available thanks to improved alignment between sector boundaries and specific FRA trajectories. In order to help airspace users identify their individual saving potential, the MUAC AO AIRAC Brief highlights the explicit and also the implicit changes to flight plan routings within the improved MUAC sectorisation.
