“Steep approach” capability

Airbus’ A318 is the largest commercial aircraft certified to land at steeper than usual gradients, with the potential to transform long-haul operations between city centres and reduce precious time and costs for business travellers.  

The A318 was approved for steep approach landing capability by the European Aviation Safety Agency (EASA) in 2007, with this modern jetliner certified for a 5.5-degree approach slope. This compares to a nominal 3-degree slope for standard operations.
