It is anticipated that the next twenty years the air transport will present an increase of almost double the growth rate of world GDP. This accelerated expansion of the sector has caused some negative consequences, such as the significant increase in carbon dioxide emissions. The aviation industry has already committed in changing this scenario and the target is to halve CO2 emissions by 2050. To achieve this goal, it is necessary to planning eco-efficient aviation fuel, which allows the reduction by 80% of CO2 emissions. The identification of alternatives to this replacement has been carried out in different research groups; however, it is clear that the planning of innovation has been carried out not integrated manner. In this sense, this study seeks to fill this theoretical gap and to contribute to this issue proposing a management tool to guide innovation in this sector. From Delphi method, it was found that the proposed scheduling method, identified as IPMEF-AT, would be considered applicable to the context in which it is intended, the innovation planning of ecoefficient air transportation fuels. The result obtained demonstrates the viability of IPMEF-AT and suggestions of experts were used in order to improve it.
