Munich Airport and Lufthansa are working together to make air travel sustainable, making a public commitment in the form of a new exhibition at the airport on the subject of limiting environmental and climate effects.
The new Green Gate exhibition in the airport’s satellite terminal means passengers can learn about the many-faceted programs and initiatives of the two companies to promote sustainable mobility.
In the Gate K21 waiting area in the satellite terminal, the partners have created a discovery zone with a visual concept centered around aspects of environmental and climate protection. Information panels with short texts, images, infographics, videos and interactive elements offer an easy-to-understand look at the measures already taken to improve the ecological balance, in addition to future strategies.
Michael Kerkloh, the CEO and president of Munich Airport, said, “The airport and the airline complement one another and are working to capture synergy effects. This makes Munich Airport a leader in green aviation. Here, you can see one of the world’s most advanced long-haul jetliners parked at one of the world’s best terminals. That not only creates greater comfort for passengers. It benefits the environment too.”
Included in the exhibition are information panels on new approach procedures; the environmentally friendly procedure for supplying aircraft with pre-conditioned air; aircraft de-icing and the recycling of de-icing fluids; air quality monitoring; and the commitment of the two companies to biodiversity, and noise and sound protection.
Visitors can also step onto an LED stepper to generate electric power through their own efforts or use a CO2 calculator to measure their personal carbon footprint.
