    Is there a sustainable future for business aviation?

    Exclusive partner Pratt & Whitney

    Business aviation proved resilient to the Covid-19 crisis. However, in the eyes of many activists, the sector – with its low passenger to fuel-use ratio – is a major carbon culprit. In recent years, business aviation has been at the forefront of efforts to drive down the environmental impact of flying. In this webinar, leaders from across business aviation explain what they are doing to improve the industry’s image and what further steps will be necessary to genuinely reduce its emission footprint.

    Hydrogen and electrics: the great disruptive propulsion debate

    Exclusive partner Pratt & Whitney

    The past two years have seen huge advances in electric propulsion. However, battery weight is a major barrier to scaling up the technology to become commercially viable for anything larger than small general aviation aircraft. Is hydrogen then the breakthrough power source that will allow the industry to transition towards zero-net-carbon? Perhaps, but, again, developments are still in their infancy. Our expert panel will discuss whether hydrogen, electric, or hybrid-electric propulsion represents the best bet for a sustainable future for aviation.

    Sustainability: How can aviation adapt to changing consumer behaviours?

    In association with CFM

    Aviation and transport were right at the top of the agenda at the recent United Nations COP26 climate change conference in Glasgow and it provided a boost for aviation decarbonisation and the sector’s net zero emissions. The drive towards increased availability and use of sustainable aviation fuels was crystal clear at COP26, as was a critical need for government, industry, and wider stakeholder collaboration to incentivise its use.

    Greener airports and smarter air traffic management

    In association with CFM

    What part will advances in air traffic management have on the industry’s push to reduce its carbon footprint over the next decades? From optimal flight paths to reducing congestion around airports, managing the skies more efficiently could be key to sustainability. And airports themselves also have a role to play in making aviation greener. In this live panel discussion, our experts will debate what needs to be done to manage air traffic in a more environmental way.

    How can airlines reconnect North America?

    Sponsored by Cirium and Miami International Airport

    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.
