As part of the evaluation process, the following points were highly praised:
1. The high-profile introduction of the world’s most advanced cargo aircraft. NCA’s B747-8F have significantly improved CO2 emissions and lower noise levels compared with the existing B747-400 aircraft.
2. Flying operational improvements – NCA is continuously working to increase the effectiveness of its equipment and limit the environmental impact of its operations.
3. The new-build maintenance hangar incorporating a range of environment-friendly measures at Narita International Airport. The hangar is designed to let in as much natural light as possible, has an advanced automatic natural ventilation system and uses rainwater to wash fuselages. These energy saving and other eco features reduce the hangar’s environmental impact.
