Video B-Roll available via CNW - NAV CANADA projects major savings through
initiatives to reduce GHG emissions and fuel costs

TORONTO, Oct. 27 /CNW/ - The following B-Roll is available by Broadcast On-Demand web download:

STORY SUMMARY: NAV CANADA, the country's air navigation service provider, estimates that improved efficiencies achieved through new technologies and procedures will save 8.4 million metric tons of aviation-related greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions in the period 2009 to 2016.

When added to the 4.3 million metric tons that have already been reduced through more efficient traffic flows between 1997 and 2008, this would result in a total decrease in aviation-related GHG emissions of 12.7 million metric tons in the Company's first 20 years (1996-2016).

The Company estimates that the implementation of new technologies, systems and procedures has already saved $1 billion in fuel costs. Another $3 billion in fuel savings is projected for 2009-2016.

The $4 billion in cumulative fuel savings would be enough to fuel a Boeing 777-300 ER to fly around the globe more than 10,000 times.

These findings were made public today as NAV CANADA issued its first Progress Report on Collaborative Initiatives for Emissions Reductions (CIFER)

SHOT LIST: Air Traffic Controllers in the Control Tower at Pearson airport; Northern Radar installations and an ADS-B ground station in Southern Greenland.
