Between landscape conservation, agriculture and aviation: Environmental and climate protection measures at Nuremberg Airport

Nuremberg Airport had already converted its power supply to 100 per cent green electricity by 2018, and then its fleet of vehicles was switched to electric mobility. But that is by no means all.

Time to Let Go: Airbus Successfully Tests Autonomous Take-Offs

As part of its ATTOL (Autonomous Taxi, Take-Off & Landing) project launched in June 2018, Airbus is conducting research into autonomous maneuvers in commercial aircraft. One special feature of this project is the system’s focus on optical information.

Touchscreen Cockpit Displays – Flying at the Touch of a Finger

Airbus begins deliveries of first A350 XWBs with touchscreen cockpit displays option to customers. The glass cockpits have been specially developed with Thales for the airline.

Am Flughafen Hamburg bekommen die Fahrzeuge der Vorfeldaufsicht ein neues, web-basiertes Display-System zur Darstellung von Flugzeugbewegungen. Echtzeit-Daten sollen die Abläufe am Airport verbessern.

E-mobility at Frankfurt Airport: Upward Trend

It will be many years before the first electrically powered commercial aircraft takes off from an airport. On the apron, however, electromobility has been around for a long time. Take Frankfurt, for example, where the operator Fraport alone runs a fleet of around 500 e-vehicles, and there are two additional tow tractors from Lufthansa LEOS that are particularly powerful.

Kerosene from the laboratory roof

The switch from fossil to renewable fuels is one of the most important challenges for the future of aviation too. On the roof of their machine laboratory, researchers at ETH Zurich are demonstrating how kerosene can be made from sunlight, carbon dioxide and water.

Less turbolence on the runway

Less turbolence on the runway

Within the framework of a research project, it has been possible for the first time to significantly reduce the dangerous wake vortices behind starting jets. This not only increases safety, but also allows a higher cycle sequence over the pistes.

Reducing costs–raising performance

Erik Muttersbach, co-founder and CTO of the digital international freight forwarder FreightHub, talks about the vision and future goals of the fast-growing start-up.

The next level of digitization

The next level of digitization

With the launch of “smartBooking”, Lufthansa Cargo has now completely digitized its quote and booking process for airfreight shipments. The airline is thus continuing on its course to, in their own words, “bring the historically complex airfreight industry to a higher level of digital maturity”.

License to fly drones, event at night and beyond line of sight

License to fly drones, event at night and beyond line of sight

When it comes to commercial drone flights, three big names – UPS, Fedex and Amazon – are already off the starting blocks. The critical US aviation authority FAA has given its blessing for deliveries to be made from the air. UPS has even been granted permitted to fly at night and beyond the pilot’s line of sight.
