Middle East airports shift to renewable energy

As the global airport industry comprising 40,000 ICAO-coded airports and revenues exceeding US$173 billion, work is on at airports in Middle East to become carbon net-zero by 2050 through enhancing infrastructure, technology-based operational efficiencies, robust controls and benchmarked excellence. The Airport Show, to be held between 9-11 May 2023 in Dubai, will have a sharp focus on sustainability and innovation. Raed Younes, UAE & Regional Business Development, dnata, said, “dnata, part of the Emirates Group, provides ground handling, cargo, travel, flight catering and retail services in 38 countries across six continents. At its 2023 edition, the Sustainable Apron will be even bigger and better, featuring advanced ground support equipment (GSE) and the latest technologies that enhance environmental efficiency at airports. In 2022, dnata committed US$ 100 million to implement green technology and initiatives across its businesses to achieve its strategic objective and reduce its carbon footprint by 50 per cent by 2030.
