skeyes rolls out environmental initiatives at regional airports
May 4, 2021
With the launch of Collaborative Environmental Management (CEM) at Liege Airport, skeyes is not a new player to the game. The air navigation service provider intends to apply this concept to all Belgian airports.
In 2018, skeyes took the initiative to introduce CEM at Brussels Airport. The national airport and several airlines accepted the challenge and since then, CEM has become an integral part of the airport's operation. At the time of this collaboration, skeyes had already expressed its willingness to deploy CEM at all Belgian airports.
Today, this intention is being realised at Liege Airport. The airport and 4 airlines (FEDEX, ASL Airlines Belgium, CAL Cargo Airlines and Challenge Airlines) are collaborating to reduce the environmental impact of airport activities. The partners are all deeply convinced of the importance of sustainability and have come together to contribute to it.
skeyes will gladly provide its experience and knowledge in this field to Liege Airport. The air navigation service provider also wants to benefit from the expertise of its partners at the regional airport.
Johan Decuyper, skeyes CEO: "skeyes continues to contribute to the attractiveness of the Belgian airspace and the economic development of Liege Airport and the other airports, while taking into account their environments. We attach great importance to our societal role and we are delighted to find more and more partners who want to help us play this role to the full. Although the airline industry has been making considerable efforts in the area of sustainability for several years now, the public's call for more sustainable aviation is becoming louder and louder. We are heeding that call. A window to work on the future of a new aviation is opening for all of us."
skeyes hopes to launch CEM projects at other regional airports in the near future.
