One of the greatest challenge for the aviation industry is improving fuel efficiency. That pervasive concept touches almost every aspect of the industry from aircraft design and construction through to aviation regulatory requirements to airline operation and air navigation service provision. The article attempts to explore the current and potential contribution from all above areas. Also discussed is the environmental factor as a driver in fuel efficiency, as well as the battery of measures that airlines are deploying in their attempt to mitigate the impact of high fuel prices on their operations. Highlighted are the initiatives and measures taken by IATA in the context of recently launched industry wide 'Fuel Action Campaign'.
