1800 Green Approaches

Stockholm’s Arlanda international airport has announced that 1,800 so-called ”Green Approaches” have been carried out.

These are unique fuel-saving measures taken when the plane shuts off the motors 30-40 minutes before landing – letting the machine coast in to the runway.

This saves fuel expenses for the flight – and avoids having the planes circle over the airport – adding to global warming pollution.
