Washington (Reuters) -The Federal Aviation Administration (FAA) said Tuesday that it plans to introduce new software features to reduce taxi times and reduce congestion for flights at 27 airports.

The FAA and NASA said new software to calculate gate pushbacks at busy hubs “to allow each plane to roll directly onto the runway and take off” has been tested for four years. The FAA said it hopes to save more than 7 million gallons of fuel annually and reduce more than 75,000 tonnes of CO2 emissions when deployed.
