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.
TLD ground support equipment (GSE) has been recognised as a major contributing factor to the success of the Swissport environmental program.
