London City Airport is located in the heart of the Canary Wharf business district and has therefore been subject to strict regulations when it comes to noise and emissions for decades. According to a plan now presented, emissions should be net zero within eight years.
On the one hand, this must be done by removing the gas from the airport, allowing ground vehicles to drive electrically and producing as little waste as possible. In addition, passengers are encouraged to make more use of public transport or electric taxis.
Due to the strict noise regulations, the number of fuel-efficient aircraft at the airport is expected to increase in the coming years. Only relatively small aircraft, such as the Embraers of KLM Cityhopper, use the airport, which has a short runway.
