Airline flies slower to cut costs23 April 2008
Belgium’s Brussels Airlines has announced it is slowing speeds and reducing weight on some of its aircraft in order to reduce fuel costs.
The airline said slowing its planes by about 10km/h would cut its annual fuel bill by 1m euros ($1.6m; Â£800,000) and add a minute or two to flight times.
The measures will also reduce the airline’s emissions of global warming greenhouse gases, a spokesman said.
