While traffic has begun to recover in Europe, continuing travel restrictions and concern over the Delta variant appear to have dashed hopes of a spectacular summer rebound for the sector. Our panel of senior industry executives debate how government policies, changing consumer and business habits, and the devastation caused to aviation over the past 16 months could reshape the way we fly within Europe in the medium and longer term.

A year ago as the pandemic tore around the world, it was anyone’s guess when North American airlines would bounce back. At the beginning of a cataclysmic global crisis, passenger carriers cut routes, retired aircraft and shed staff. Now, optimism has returned, with major airlines reporting promising first quarter results, and sharply higher demand as Americans get back in the air. Majors are offering more point-to-point routes and looking to alliance partners to help support their growth, while smaller carriers scramble to grab more market share while US travellers have money to spend. Two new low-cost entrants - Avelo Airlines and Breeze Airways - are set to shake up the US market, while two others – Sun Country and Frontier Airlines – recently launched successful IPOs.

We have been talking about it for a decade or more, but price and availability remain barriers for a sustainable aviation fuel breakthrough. What will it take for SAF to become mainstream. Our expert panel debates the key challenges for airlines, fuel companies, airports, engine manufacturers and regulators in transforming SAF from novelty to necessity. And what of the fuel itself? Is it as green as it is painted? Is it the best means to wean the industry from its carbon dependency?

Recent years have seen a flurry of initiatives to develop alternative power sources for aviation, from batteries to hydrogen. However, how realistic is a technological breakthrough that will herald a future generation of engines that do not use carbon-based fuel? Some believe a propulsion revolution is possible as soon as the next decade; others that evolution of current jet turbine technology is the most likely solution to cutting the industry’s carbon footprint. Our panel of experts will debate the likely course forward.

The worst year in modern commercial aviation is ending with positive news – the prospect of a Covid-19 vaccine being imminently available. Coupled with advances in rapid testing for air passengers and the growth of bilateral travel bubbles, are things about to improve? However, with cash-starved airlines on the brink, and an aerospace supply chain in crisis, the pain and uncertainty is sure to continue well into 2021.

A one-hour FlightGlobal-hosted webinar discussing how aerospace and aviation companies and other organisations in the industry can both guard against a cyber-attack and manage any crisis that results from such an attack. In recent months alone, businesses including ST Aerospace and EasyJet have been in the news after suffering cyber security attacks. The threat to the industry is real and growing. Our expert panel will discuss the extent of the threat and what firms can do to protect themselves both from an attack itself, and also mitigate any damage caused by a breach by having a ready crisis-management plan and a security team ready to step into action.

Airlines and airports are slowly picking up the pieces of networks shattered by a coronavirus crisis that has seen the majority of the world’s passenger flights grounded, and many countries shutting their borders to international travel. As the world of air travel opens up again, what factors will drive which routes will return first, and how might route maps change permanently? How are network planners choosing what services to reinstate and what tactics should airports use to retain or lure new customers, given that some airlines will not survive the crisis and many will be forced to drastically reappraise their networks. Will the crisis change the entire relationship between airports and airlines?

Despite, or perhaps because of, the Covid-19 crisis, the aerospace and defence industry is under pressure like never before to be innovative and agile, and one of the most effective technologies is digital engineering: capabilities that allow enable design teams to work collaboratively and more productively. In fact, such is its potential for disruptive change, digital engineering has been described by the US Air Force as “the new stealth”. Our expert panel will discuss the potential of the technology and the benefits of becoming a truly digital enterprise, with examples from industry leaders on how it has transformed the way their businesses operate.

After the coronavirus pandemic led to the biggest downturn in history, the aviation industry is slowly rebuilding operations and networks. Tens of thousands of pilots throughout the world have been furloughed, laid off or taken early retirement, while others face uncertainty as work patterns and the types of aircraft they fly change.

The grounding of passenger flights has led to a massive reduction in belly-hold capacity, traditionally responsible for about half of all international air freight. This has meant demand for air freight is outstripping supply. This webinar will assess the impact of this, and the long-term viability of solutions currently available, and discuss the shape of the sector that emerges from this crisis.

This may be the deepest crisis affecting the global airline industry in living memory, but it is by no means the first. From the recession of the early 1990s through the Asian economic crash and 9/11, and from SARS to the 2008 financial crisis, macro-economic shocks have been an occupational hazard for airline leaders. In each of these cases, major brands went to the wall and others survived, and the industry that emerged looked very different to previously. What lessons can history teach us?
In a matter of weeks, the airline industry worldwide has been brought to its knees by the coronavirus, with carriers slashing schedules, thousands of aircraft grounded, staff furloughed, and airports empty of passengers. The knock-on effect on the aerospace industry has been equally cataclysmic, with Boeing – already rocked by the Max grounding – pushed to the brink of bankruptcy. Where does a devastated industry go from here?
