Air traffic is increasing rapidly in India as well as world. The increase in air traffic causes the increase in consumption of ATF and hence an increase in the cost. The demand for ATF is leading to a shortage of Aviation Turbine Fuel supply and the cost of ATF is escalating. We are already observing that the increase in air traffic is making ATF very expensive. ATF prices become an important expenditure for the airliners. Hence, aircraft fuel consumption becomes a relevant issue for the planning and analysis for aviation operations. Studies on Optimal Aviation Fuel Consumption have been carried out for HAL Bangalore International Airport and Old Hyderabad International Airport. These studies have been carried out using basic concepts of minor rescheduling of flight times for ground operations and allowing aircraft to cruise at fuel optimal altitudes and air operations. Results presented in this report are encouraging as it leads to fuel conservation during ground and air operations. Observations from fuel consumption studies would form an input for Airlines / ATC and AAI to achieve optimal aviation fuel consumption.
