The airport is a uniquely complicated space, typically bringing together hundreds of companies, thousands of vehicles and millions of passengers.
Airlines, air traffic control, ground handlers, baggage handlers, catering companies, refueling trucks, passenger shuttle transport, airport maintenance services, emergency services, police, border control, retailers – all of these have a place at the airport.
Since the 1970’s airports have been carrying out environmental management programmes dealing with monitoring air quality, water management, noise mitigation and biodiversity management. Now, in the context of climate change, different initiatives are underway to help lower carbon dioxide emissions at the airport. Click on the flashing dots below to find out more.
