A Roadmap Toward a Sustainable Aviation Ecosystem

August 31, 2022

A Roadmap Toward a Sustainable Aviation Ecosystem
This report outlines a holistic view of pathways to a sustainable aviation ecosystem, focusing on low-net-carbon aircraft energy carriers (fuels), airport ecosystems (airports and bases), and developments in sustainable aircraft components (aircraft). Taking this holistic ecosystem perspective, we identify critical components that contribute to sustainable energy solutions necessary to achieve deep decarbonization of the aviation industry, as well as the integrated energy system interfaces that must be comprehensively understood, planned for, and realized. Further, we outline necessary R&D needs to achieve sustainability across the aviation ecosystem, including advancing breakthrough innovations to rapidly achieve scalable solutions, with attention to their cross-sectoral dependencies and implications.

A SIMPLE GUIDE TO CORPORATE AIRLINE REWARD SCHEMES

whitePaper | November 17, 2019

If you travel a lot for work, then you’ll know about airline reward schemes. These programmes encourage travellers to book again and again with the same airline, collect loyalty points and exchange them for benefits such as discounted fares and free upgrades. But did you also know that in addition to these frequent flyer schemes for individuals, there are also airline reward schemes for companies? These corporate reward schemes are a great way to maximise the value of your company’s travel spend, while benefitting your travellers at the same time.

Advancing Cyber Resilience in Aviation: An Industry Analysis

whitePaper | January 22, 2020

Civil aviation is an incredibly safe mode of transport. Year-on-year statistics referenced by the International Air Transport Association (IATA) Annual Safety Report demonstrate this. Considering the forecast of double-digit growth over the next 20 years and the new infrastructure needed to manage capacity and services – and as indirectly evidenced by high levels of consumer confidence documented in widely available growth analysis – continued efforts today will clearly be paramount tomorrow to maintain the safety promise.

Shipping Aircraft Tire Assemblies by Air

whitePaper | December 15, 2019

Serviceable tire assemblies are considered dangerous since they are typically inflated to high pressure. Essentially, when tire assemblies are shipped by air, the pressure inside the tire increases once the plane reaches altitude. This rise in pressure could cause an over-inflated tire to explode in the cargo hold and compromise the structural integrity of the aircraft. Aircraft tires that are not mounted on the rim are not considered dangerous as they are not under pressure and do not pose a safety hazard.
