A new approach peak offload (APO) procedure at Dubai International Airport has tackled the airport's poor reputation for arrival delays, according to a report from Sananda Sahoo in The National, and the reduction in aircraft waiting time has already resulted in a reduction of carbon dioxide emissions of up to 447 tonnes a month.
At peak periods, the airport can now accommodate 34.8 arrivals per hour - an increase of more than 4.5%
