“Green landings” at Brussels Airport

General

skeyes and Brussels Airport are among the pioneers of the deployment of green landings and work closely with airlines to reduce the aviation sector's ecological footprint and continuously improve environmental performance.

During November 2018, 74% of landings at Brussels Airport were made using the CDO procedure.

What is CDO?

CDO ( Continuous Descent Operation ) is an operation in which the plane descends continuously with minimal motor power, depending on the characteristics of the flight and of the air traffic situation.

This allows for a reduction in noise pollution, the consumption of kerosene and greenhouse gas emissions.
