With the recovery of demand, aviation focuses on sustainability

The industry already has tools to measure CO2 emissions, it is also possible to analyze the supply, demand and liquidity of aircraft

Different studies show that the recovery of demand at a global level is a fact, now the great challenge of commercial aviation is to be more friendly with the environment.
The “zero net CO2 emissions” objective led the progress of the 41st ICAO Assembly. The International Air Transport Association (IATA) welcomed the adoption during the 41st Assembly of the International Civil Aviation Organization (ICAO) of the ambitious long-term goal (LTAG) of achieving zero net CO2 emissions in 2050, a notable advance by the States that aligns with the objectives of the Paris Agreement and the resolution of zero net CO2 emissions in 2050 agreed by airlines at the 77th IATA Annual General Assembly in October 2021.

“The importance of the LTAG agreement cannot be underestimated. The aviation industry’s commitment to reach net zero by 2050 requires government policies to support this commitment. Now that both governments and industry have set their sights on achieving net-zero emissions by 2050, we hope that strong policy initiatives will be launched in key areas for decarbonisation, such as incentivizing the production capacity of sustainable aviation fuels (SAF ). And the global determination to decarbonize aviation that underpins this agreement must accompany all delegates back home and lead to effective political action that enables all States to support the industry’s purpose of accelerating progress on this matter,” said Willie Walsh, director general of IATA.

The decision to establish an ambitious long-term goal from ICAO comes after intense negotiations between the different areas of interest around the world. The ICAO Assembly strongly supported this goal. CORSIA The Assembly also reinforced its commitment to the Carbon Offsetting and Reduction Scheme for International Aviation (CORSIA), and to stabilizing emissions from international aviation at 85% of 2019 levels. this agreement, many governments highlighted CORSIA’s role as the only cost-effective measure to manage the carbon footprint of international aviation.

“The Assembly agreement strengthens CORSIA. Lowering the baseline will significantly increase costs for airlines. It is therefore more essential than ever that governments do not undermine the foundations of CORSIA as the only economic measure to manage the footprint.” emissions from international aviation. States must respect, support and defend CORSIA against the proliferation of other economic measures that will only undermine CORSIA and the collective effort to decarbonize aviation,” said Walsh.

New Tools
Aviation analytics company Cirium announced the integration of aircraft CO2 emissions and satellite flight tracking data into Fleets Analyzer, its fleet analytics solution.

Jeremy Bowen, CEO of Cirium, explained: “Cirium has focused on the accuracy and convergence of the data we provide to customers. By bringing together tracked flight data and aircraft CO2 emissions with our unrivaled fleet information, companies can monitor and have a 360-degree view of aircraft globally to analyze aircraft supply, demand and liquidity.”

Aircraft CO2 emissions data has been praised by major airlines such as American Airlines and Virgin Atlantic for its accuracy, something Cirium has integrated into its fleet analysis tool, along with advanced tracking data. of satellite flights of individual aircraft. In this way, a complete coverage of the use of narrow and wide-body aircraft is obtained in any part of the world.

This major update adds to the solution’s vast fleet data of over 450,000 unique aircraft records of 770 different types, making it the most flexible and comprehensive fleet analytics tool on the market. current, with unsurpassed data quality.

According to a new analysis carried out with the solution, for example, total CO2 emissions from commercial passenger flights globally were reduced by 23% in September 2022 compared to the same month in 2019.

Given that there were 15% fewer flights in the compared periods, the analysis indicates a reduction in average CO2 emissions per flight of 9.5% for September 2022 compared to 2019.

This represents a total decrease of 16.2 million tons of CO2 emissions compared to the previous year.

The analysis also shows that there has been a structural reduction in CO2 emissions per commercial flight since the start of the pandemic. In fact, the combination of new technology aircraft being delivered or returned to service and the reduction in long-haul flights were the main drivers. The difference has narrowed recently, as long-haul flights have started to pick up.

This information can be analyzed in many ways. For example, the data can compare actual flights flown between the Airbus A320neo and the older generation A320ceo, or with competing aircraft types such as the Boeing 737 Max.

Data can be segmented into over 100 categories, for example by MSN list, airlines, lessors, country, etc.

Cirium Fleets Analyzer has the best supported and researched fleet data, is the first solution to provide Electric and Advanced Air Mobility data, and now leverages the most advanced flight tracking data thanks to Cirium’s partnership with Aireon and its solution best-in-class, patented aircraft emissions reporting solution.
