The growing demand for performance-based navigation, which includes preparing user-defined flight plans and efficient fuel management during the flight are important functions of FMS, which play a fair role in increasing its demand for the Wide Body Aircraft (WBA). The demand for WBA is rising significantly across the globe due to a rise in passenger traffic. The escalating connectivity between the main geographical locations of growing regions and the most developed urban regions has led to a boost in the demand for fuel efficient aircraft in order to reduce the travelling costs.
