Can Aviation Go Green? What’s the future for Sustainable Aviation?
This question has been asked many times over the past few years but the Coronavirus pandemic has reset the clock in some ways.
Predictions that were made only one or two years ago with regard to the aviation industry now have to be recalculated in light of the sudden drop in international air travel in the first half of 2020.
As the aviation industry recovers it could be years before passenger numbers return to pre-pandemic levels, so the dire predictions from 2018 or 2019 with regard to CO2 emissions from air travel need to be reconsidered.
Immediately after 9/11 flights were grounded for a mere four days.
The Coronavirus pandemic cleared the skies of all but a small number of aircraft for three months.
So, on the one hand there’s been a lot less air travel and there will be fewer flights in the immediate future.
The catastrophic impact of the pandemic and lockdown has resulted in several airlines going out of business altogether; FlyBe, Avianca, and Virgin Australia to name just three.
The industry has lost billions in revenue and thousands of employees have been made redundant as airlines are restructured in order to remain financially viable.
