Trajectory optimisation is one option to reduce air traffic impact on environment. A multidimensional environmental assessment framework is needed to optimize impact on climate, local air quality and noise simultaneously. An interface between flight planning and environmental impact information can be established with environmental cost functions. In a feasibility study such multidimensional assessment can be applied to the European Airspace. The project ATM4E within the frame of SESAR2020 has spelled out the objective to develop such a concept and to study changing traffic flows due to environmental optimisation.
