Airlines’ mid-term sustainability plan amid COVID-19
Most airlines are considering multiple transformation programmes in order to dilute the impact of COVID-19 and incorporate elements of sustainability. European Union, for example, is proceeding with European Green Deal to align with the improved environmental awareness of their customer base and incorporate social responsibility among the industry’s executives and employees.
Sustainability in the airline industry can be improved by enhancing operational efficiency, adopting innovative aircraft architectures and multi-modal transportation, according to the Solar Impulse Foundation (SIF), an environmental non-profit organisation. The operational efficiency and safety of the aircraft, for example, can be enhanced by using artificial intelligence (AI)-driven functions.
Similarly, new engine layouts, sustainable aviation fuel (SAF), and aerodynamic aircraft designs can improve performace and generate positive environmental effects, while making the best use of different modes of transport can reduce the need for unnecessary regional flying, adds SIF. The New Zealand government, for example, has agreed to use lower-emitting biofuel blend across the transportation industry. Further, BP and Qantas have collaborated to reduce carbon emissions in the aviation industry and to develop a SAF industry in Australia.
