Finally, this:When allowing limited crosswind, airspace users can shorten the global trajectory of the flights through optimized departure and arrival routes.
This last isn't english. It sounds a bit like a priest explaining transubstantiation.
It isn't goodly English, for sure. Better
Where there is little or no crosswind, airliners can take off in the same direction of their destination rather than at some tangent to it.
I suppose that might save a little fuel.
WTF Rob? Really? Since when does "taking off in the direction of their destination" have any meaning? In other words you have planes flying off this stupid russian inspired runway like fucking sparks from a Cathrine Wheel without regard to incoming traffic or wind? And with a circular runway, ALL WIND IS CROSSWIND!!!!!!!
It just pisses me off.
