TaxiBot, a semi-robotic towing tractor, towed a SpiceJet aircraft to the runway, marking the first-time use of such a machine for a commercial aircraft in India.

It would help in saving fuel, reducing CO2 emissions as well as noise levels, according to officials. SpiceJet’s Boeing 737 aircraft – that was to fly to Goa – was towed to the runway at Terminal 2 of the airport here, according to a release.

TaxiBot is connected to the nose wheel of the aircraft and enables the pilot to move the plane to the runway without switching on the plane’s engines.
