Aviation groups in Europe have revealed a new strategy to assist in reducing their global-warming emissions of carbon dioxide.
It doesn’t involve changing the aircraft, or changing the type of fuel used, by changing the manner by which the aircraft land.
By 2013 approximately 100 airports in Europe will allow aircraft to descend all the way from cruising altitude to the runway in one smooth glide.
It is estimated that this will save up to 450 kg of CO2 per landing.
In doing so, the airlines are hoping to save 500,000 metric tonnes of carbon gas per year which marks a substantial effort by the airline industry to combat climate change, and certainly coming at a time of global economic crisis places the onus of government’s and other industry’s not to step back from the urgency of the issue.
