Liege Airport, along with local aviation and development groups, have signed a co-operation agreement with airlines that aims to reduce the environmental impact of airport operations.
The cargo specialist airport has teamed up with FedEx, ASL Airlines Belgium, CAL Cargo Airlines, and Challenge Airlines on the initiative.
The main objectives of the working agreement are to: develop a common environmental strategy and joint action plans to minimise environmental impacts; promote a better understanding of the airport – airlines – air navigation service provider network; support the sustainable growth of the airport; and support the airport’s ISO 14001:2015 certification and its participation in the Airport Carbon Accreditation programme.
“Stakeholders have been meeting quarterly since September 2020 to come up with joint solutions to environmental challenges in and around the airport,” said Frédéric Jacquet, interim chief executive of Liege Airport.
“This collaboration will allow us to take a broader range of measures to limit the impact on the environment.”
