Aviation – a brighter tomorrow

Welcome on-board this flight for a brighter tomorrow.

Aviation is a key driver of connectivity and economic activity. Air transport supports 65.5 million jobs and USD2.7 trillion in global economic activity. The global network used to carry more than 4 billion passengers and 62 million tonnes of freight each year. The coronavirus has had a devastating impact on the aviation industry. It has been said that the crisis will have an impact for years, and the market will take years, perhaps a decade, to return to pre-crisis levels.

In this series, we discuss the future of aviation. We explore how the industry must bounce back and consider actions the sector and governments can take to help in the short and long-term.

We consider: 

  • Why people travel? 
  • What the journey of the future looks like
  • Concerns associated with the move to a contactless travel experience
  • Actions governments can take to help the aviation industry
  • Measures the aviation industry has taken to reduce carbon emissions
  • The outlook for aircraft and engine manufacturers

“Airlines empower people’s lives and turbo-charge the global economy through a worldwide network that safely carries more than 4 billion passengers and 62 million tonnes of freight each year. The ability of aviation – the business of freedom – to sustainably connect cultures and spread prosperity beyond borders has never been more important.”

Alexandre de Juniac, the Director General and CEO of the International Air Transport Association (IATA)
