  2. History of Polar Operations Between Europe and Asia • 1957: SAS DC-6B; CPH-ANC-NRT Washington Los Angeles Chicago New York San Francisco • 1983: Finnair DC-10; HEL-NRT nonstop via Bering Strait London Frankfurt Moscow • Today: More than 300 flights/week from Europe to Asia via Russian interior Tokyo Beijing Beijing Singapore Karachi Delhi • Europe  Asia • 1960s-1980s: Anchorage becomes major transit airport Anchorage

  3. Polar Routes 1- 4: History Washington Los Angeles Chicago New York San Francisco London Frankfurt Moscow Tokyo Beijing Beijing Singapore Karachi Delhi • Russia began opening its airspace in the 1990’s • RFE routes expanded north and west of NOPAC • Polar 1 - 4 conceived 1993 • First trial flight July 1998 • Formal opening Feb. 1, 2001 • ETOPS flight March 1, 2001 • Today: More than 20 passenger flights/week from US to Asia via Polar Routes

  4. Polar Route Advantages • Opens new nonstop routes • More choices • Minimize trip times, avoid hubs • More efficient operations • Lower fuel burns • Shorter trip times • Increased payload potential • No intermediate fuel stop

  5. Polar Route Use ExamplesTime/Fuel Savings: Chicago-Beijing G490 B480 G491 Beijing G495 G494 A218 G212 Chicago Block Fuel, lb (000s) 200 Fuel Savings: -7300 lb (-3300 kg) 195 190 • Savings: • • up to 30 minutes flight time • AND • • over 7,000 lb (3.2 tonnes) of fuel; or 5,000lb (2.5 tonnes) increased cargo capacity G491 G495 B480 A218 G212 • 777-200ER • 301 Passengers • 85% Winter Winds

  6. Polar Route OpportunitiesOpen New Markets: New York - Hong Kong G490 B480 Hong Kong G491 G495 G494 A218 New York G212 R222 Payload, lb (000s) 70 301 Passengers 60 275 254 50 215 40 • Nonstop service now practical: • • Required still air range reduced over 450 nm • • Full passenger loads plus cargo • • Trip times substantially reduced B480 G491 G490 G495 A218 G212 R222 • 777-200ER • 301 Passengers • 85% Winter Winds
