Canada’s busiest airport is adopting new landing procedures in an effort to cut down on noise and greenhouse gas emissions caused by descending airplanes.

An Air Canada flight makes its final approach as it lands at Pearson International Airport in Toronto on Sept. 30, 2004. Planes approaching the airport from the South are now able to fly 1,000 feet higher. The corporation that runs the Canada’s Civil Air Navigation Systems says this new rule will reduce noise over some nearby communities.

Toronto’s Pearson Airport is now using satellite based data and modern flight management systems to help planes arrive at the same time on parallel runways.

Pearson is the second in Canada to roll out the new procedures after Calgary’s airport did in 2018.

The navigation agency says an Air Canada flight flying from London’s Heathrow Airport to Pearson was one of the first flights to use the new practices on Monday.
