EasyJet are delighted to confirm that they're partnering with Rolls-Royce researching industry-wide sustainability solutions for commercial aircraft.

Danish prime minister Mette Frederiksen has set down an aim for all domestic flights in Denmark to operate “completely green” by the end of the decade.

Airbus have the ambition to develop the world’s first zero-emission commercial aircraft by 2035. Hydrogen propulsion will help them to deliver on this ambition.

Fly Net Zero is the commitment of airlines to achieve net zero carbon by 2050. At the 77th IATA Annual General Meeting in Boston, USA, on 4 October 2021, a resolution was passed by IATA member airlines committing them to achieving net-zero carbon emissions from their operations by 2050. This pledge brings air transport in line with the objectives of the Paris agreement to limit global warming to 1.5°C.

Embraer used the COP26 climate conference in Glasgow, Scotland, this week as the occasion to announce a new family of greener airliners that it says will reduce carbon emissions. The four concept aircraft in the Energia family, which range from a hybrid commuter plane to one flying on hydrogen fuel cells, are part of a pledge by the commercial aviation industry to achieve net-zero carbon emissions by 2050.

as of today Air France and KLM Royal Dutch Airlines include some sustainable aviation fuel (SAF) on all tickets, with a departure or transit in France and the Netherlands. We want to set a new standard for sustainable aviation while speeding up the road towards a more sustainable aviation industry.

Air France says that “French regulations require the incorporation of 1 per cent SAF on all fuels departing from France. As a result, a SAF contribution will be included in the price of each ticket, ranging from €1-4 in the economy cabin to €1.50-12 in the business cabin, depending on distance.”

airBaltic are happy to announce that in 2021 we continued our path towards greener flying, increasing the use of sustainable aviation fuel (SAF) by 20%. At airBaltic, we believe that SAF will play a crucial role in ensuring the future of the aviation industry. Watch the video and learn more about the initiative!

Announcements about electric cars, lorries and even buses are now an almost daily occurrence, but what about the aviation sector? After all, international travel is often held up as a leading source of pollution and a contributing factor towards climate change.

Airbus is looking to recruit around 6,000 new personnel across the aerospace group to support its strategic direction during the recovery. The company had slashed its workforce as the pandemic disrupted its aircraft production but it is preparing to accelerate output over the next 18 months.

There is no doubt that we need to turn our way of living to achieve carbon neutrality on our planet - the faster the better. While the ultimate goal is clear, the way to get there is rather complex due to the extreme variety of sources that emit CO2 and other greenhouse gases. Aviation - accounting for approx. 3% of global CO2 emission - is certainly one of the most challenging sectors to decarbonize.

Early or late, the future is en-route and will be coming in to land sooner than the majority of people realise. A number of companies around the world are currently preparing eVTOL vehicles (electric vertical take-off and landing vehicles), which could revolutionise the way we get around big cities. Quiet, comfortable and carbon-free, eVTOLs promise to rise above congested roads, easing urban transport issues while getting passengers to their destinations in record time. Meanwhile, regulators on the ground are working hard to prepare the rules and infrastructure required to make this new form of transport feasible.

The aviation industry is all in when it comes to sustainability. Technology is playing a major role as airlines, aircraft manufacturers and their supplier-partners apply proven and new technologies to shrink the industry’s environmental footprint and make carbon-neutral air travel a reality.
