The world is witnessing the convergence of two trends:
As consumers, we are used to things happening where and when we want. We value easy access to useful services and don’t expect to pay too much.
At the same time, environmental awareness has increased. More and more people consider the external effects of their activities and are keen to limit their impact.
The aviation industry hasn’t yet adjusted to these trends. Airlines still decide for consumers where and when to fly, providing a supply rather than demand-based solution. Aviation also remains a key source of greenhouse gases, currently generating up to 5% of man-made carbon emissions worldwide.
the aviation industry must reinvent itself by offering greater flexibility and little or no emissions.
