    Sustainability: Are we ready to embrace disruptive propulsion?

    In association with Pratt & Whitney

    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.

    Network planning in the new reality

    Sponsored by Miami International Airport and OAG

    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?
