Clean air is a basic need. The operation of Munich Airport causes the release of emissions. Apart from aircraft engines, sources of emissions include ground handling activities, the generation of electric power, heating and cooling, and public and private surface transportation.
Munich Airport has carried out numerous emission reduction measures in the past. With two stationary measurement locations and one mobile station operating for six-month intervals in communities in the airport region, Munich Airport continuously monitors the air for contaminants. The results are published in monthly emission impact reports. In addition, as a highly detailed, up-to-date information service, the airport provides real-time air quality readings on its website.
