Abstract
4D trajectory optimisation has showed good potential to reduce environmental impact in aviation. However, a recurrent problematic is the loss in air traffic capacity that these pose, usually overcome with speed and time advisories. This paper aims at the quantification in terms of fuel consumption of implementing suboptimal trajectories to preserve capacity. Via an own developed optimisation framework, we deliver results on how imposing a nonoptimal RTA to a trajectory increases the fuel burned....
