Long-distance visit from Beijing Capital International Airport…

On April 24 we had a long-distance visit from Beijing. It was a group from Beijing Capital International Airport (PEK) who visited at their visit to Swedavia where the purpose of the visit was to study Swedavia’s development of sustainable airports.

Swedavia/Stockholm Arlanda Airport is a “sister airport” with Beijing Capital International Airport since 2016. All “Sister Airports” meet annually in a joint forum, “Beijing Global Friend Airport’s CEO Forum”, for joint discussions on various issues. We are very proud to be able to give the Chinese delegation a tour of our facility at Arlanda.

The current visit focused on sustainability in connection with the construction of Beijing’s new airport: Beijing Daxing International Airport (PKX), which opens on China’s National Day on October 1, 2019.

"Previously 10,000 tons was disposed of. Now the glycol can be recycled instead!"

Swedish airport operator Swedavia, with 37.6 million passengers, is a leading player when it comes to environmental issues Vilokan now closes the cycle so that Swedavia can recycle and reuse valuable glycol.

"We are now global leaders in glycol recycling"

Montreal Pierre Trudeau Airport (YUL) has invested approx. 10 million CAD (approx. 65 million SEK) in a facility from Vilokan ADF Solutions. It will be operated by AeroMag 2000, who take care of the de-icing onsite.
