India’s civilian airspace regulator, the Airports Authority of India (AAI), will introduce new navigation norms to help save on fuel costs by accommodating more aircraft in narrower air corridors. The new regulations will be phased in from March. The AAI plans to reduce airspace between two aircraft to 80km (50 nautical miles, or nm) from 140km (80nm), which will allow more aircraft to fly within optimal range-high altitudes where aircraft burn less fuel.
