Munich Airport is initiating measures to save significantly on lighting and air conditioning.

Anyone who visits the Munich Airport Center Forum after dark these days may notice that the large glass membrane roof over the MAC is no longer illuminated in many colors. This is one of the clearly visible measures with which Flughafen München GmbH is further reducing consumption at the airport in view of the tense situation on the energy market. FMG had already initiated numerous energy-saving measures before the Federal Ordinance on Securing the Energy Supply came into force on September 1, 2022.

The lighting of the large M logos at the airport entrances and signs that are not absolutely necessary will remain switched off until further notice. The lighting in the parking facilities at the airport has been reduced to the necessary level. A total of 7.000 light points have already been switched off on the airport site - this corresponds to the consumption of around 850 households. Energy requirements were also significantly reduced for the ventilation and air conditioning of the offices at the airport. When heating the terminals, a maximum temperature of 19°C is aimed for in the cold season.

“FMG is aware of its corporate and social responsibility and has therefore set itself the goal of noticeably further reducing consumption. The measures are being developed by a special staff set up at the airport, which is now examining and launching further options for saving energy with a view to the coming months and the requirements of the Federal Ordinance. The tenants of the airport infrastructure were asked by letter to implement the energy-saving measures in accordance with the federal ordinance," the airport said in a press release.
