Description:

Green Approach is the equivalent to eco-driving, but for airplanes. It means that the information in the airplane and the control centrals are used together, which makes it possible to plan the planes landing approach more carefully in order to lower its fuel consumption. The Green Approach is a cooperative initiative between the Swedish Transport Agency and the airline SAS. According to the Swedish Transport Agency, Green Approach can lower the consumption of fuel by 100-800 kg per flight. At present the figure is 100 kg per flight, since the technique can only be used under certain circumstances.
