Earlier this month, airline industry group IATA warned again about a global airport capacity crisis. With passenger levels projected to nearly double to 7.8 billion by 2036, infrastructure such as airports and air traffic control systems are not keeping pace. Governments need to urgently tackle a capacity crisis facing airports as demand for international travel grows.
When expansion cannot be done the traditional way by expanding infrastructure, increasing operational efficiency is a way to go and this month we have put together stories about topics related to the capacity issue; Congestion at airport as a challenge, A-CDM as one efficient solution. We also share with you a first part in a series of two about the Carbon Offset Reduction Scheme in Aviation, CORSIA. Handling CO2 emissions in a sustainable way is a global challenge, particularly in China which is one of the regions we highlight in this newsletter.
