NextGen is Working

NextGen Benefits

Once all planned programs are in place, FAA expects NextGen to deliver $134 billion in direct airline, industry, and passenger benefits (passenger value of time and carbon dioxide emissions) through 2030.

Society Benefits $80.1 Billion

  • $79.7 billion passenger value of time
  • $400 million reduction in carbon dioxide emissions

Airline Benefits $51.4 Billion

  • $37.1 billion reduction in crew and maintenance costs
  • $14.3 billion fuel savings
  • $2 billion FAA efficiencies (e.g. System Wide Information Management)

Industry Benefits $2.4 Billion

  • $200 million additional airline flights
  • $200 million additional airport passengers

Achieving all NextGen future benefits is dependent upon full funding of FAA's 2015 budget requests from 2015-2019.

The $134 billion includes $1 billion of additional benefits estimated by McKinsey Consulting.
