Flight paths

Central Leader - - NEWS -

Two SMART ap­proaches to Auck­land Air­port will be used from May 28. The two satel­lite-guided flight paths to the air­port from the north will be used be­tween 7am and 10pm by up to 10 air­craft a day. The de­ci­sion to im­ple­ment them was an­nounced by the avi­a­tion in­dus­try in De­cem­ber, af­ter a trial and public con­sul­ta­tion. As a re­sult of feed­back, the two flight paths were mod­i­fied to re­duce air­craft noise, use less fuel and de­liver benefits for the en­vi­ron­ment.
