Dubai International airport has implemented an innovative procedure that will boost air traffic movements capacity and also reduce fuel consumption.
The new procedure will reduce the peak arrival delay by up to 40 per cent and also reduce carbon emissions by up to 447 tonnes on a monthly basis.
Shaikh Ahmed bin Saeed Al Maktoum, president of the Dubai Civil Aviation Authority, chairman of Dubai Airports, chairman and CEO of Emirates Airline and Group and chairman of Dubai Air Navigation Services (dans), announced the implementation of the Approach Peak Offload (APO) procedure.
The air traffic management procedure has led to an increase from 33.2 to 34.8 in average air traffic movements for arrivals during peak hours at Dubai International Airport. More info
