Greener airport operations

Event description

An aircraft’s journey starts and ends at the airport. This first webinar of the series on Smart and sustainable solutions for greener ATM will focus on SESAR solutions aiming to provide Europe’s airports with a greener, cleaner and quieter operating environment. More specifically, the webinar will showcase research from:

  • A completed exploratory research project – ATM4E - which explored the trade-offs between limiting the environmental impact of aviation at the local level (noise and local air quality around the airport) and at global level (climate change impacts).
  • The airport and airline perspective on greener aircraft taxiing research and the challenges their implementation poses from an ATM perspective, including the consideration of both one-engine and engine-off solutions
  • The ongoing SESAR funded MODUS exploratory research project, which will provide insight into the role the inter-modal view can play in reducing the overall impact of transport on climate and how ATM can support this transformation.
