Chennai Airport Not Ready For New Drive To Save Fuel, Cut Emissions


The city’s airport may not be ready to implement Airports Authority of India (AAI) and DGCA’s plan to have flights with ‘dispatch with no destination alternate’, aimed at saving fuel and emissions.

Pilots file one or two nearby airports as alternative destinations to divert flights if there is a congestion at the destination airport. They also carry additional fuel needed for diversions. This is considered to be polluting and expensive, as planes burn fuel to carry more fuel. The new scheme is being tried out as part of a ‘green’ initiative to prevent this loss at Hyderabad airport and is expected to be extended to other major airports as well. Read more
