Every year, over US $6 trillion worth of goods are carried by air, accounting for approximately 35% of world trade by value. Supporting reliable, efficient and cost-effective air cargo transportation is paramount to strong regional economies and the aviation industry’s recovery. A key component to this reality is sustainability. From clean fuel alternatives to leveraging optimization software to enhance resource management – read here some initiatives to make air cargo transportation more sustainable
The aviation industry’s recovery is clearly underway but challenges remain. Passenger demand continues to increase, but capacity issues persist due to staff shortages and changing Covid regulatory procedures. For cargo, which had been one of the bright spots during the pandemic, ground handling bottlenecks are driving higher air cargo rates. The promise of sustainable aircraft fuels (SAFs) is still high in the minds of airline and airport executives, but these fuels are not yet widely available. Add to these challenges, increasing cyber threats targeting airports and airlines and it is evident that the industry is still in the midst of a difficult period. Read this and more news here.
As the aviation industry continues its advancement to recovery, there remain key challenges. Labor shortages, coupled with intense traffic peaks, are leaving airlines grappling with operations. While seeking solutions to their challenges, airlines, airports and ground handlers are also making sustainability a top priority. Read more news highlights in our monthly wrap-up.
Typically, airliners have to run their jet engines in order to move along the runway. This however increases fuel consumption and thus carbon emissions. With this in mind, airports have been accelerating measures to reshape their aircraft towing process. One of the initiatives gaining track is the inclusion of new technologies such as semi-robotic vehicles. Read in our blog post what advanced technologies is the industry using to facilitate a more sustainable aircraft towing:
