Technology for Sustainability in Aviation
09:00  to  10:30 v 'Room - Nashville'

The aviation industry has had a couple of challenging years due to the pandemic and is now under increasing pressure to become more sustainable to meet the growing calls from climate change. Customers are also demanding more for airlines to become greener, so what technologies and innovations can be employed to be more sustainable? Is net zero emissions possible? How will digital aviation impact the industry?

Sustainable Fuel Alternatives
11:00  to  12:30 v 'Room - Nashville'

Decarbonizing aviation is critical to solving the climate crisis, and an important issue for airlines to address as part of their flight operations and will become increasingly critical in the coming decades.

Airlines are already investing in sustainable aviation fuel (SAF), e.g., electric, hydrogen, and the hybrid aircraft. How do these fuel alternatives stack up and how will they help airlines decarbonize, be cleaner and greener, and meet the environmental challenge of reaching zero emission by 2050?

Optimising Fuel Efficiency
14:00  to  15:30 v 'Room - Nashville'

How do we deliver a more sustainable aviation industry whilst ensuring airlines remain profitable?

What are technical capabilities for environmental challenges, how do we decrease emissions, and what is the CO2 limitation challenge? How can fuel efficiency IT systems and innovations for decarbonizing contrails contribute toward sustainable aviation? What is the impact of the technology environment (at different stages of flight e.g., TBO/4D Trajectory)?
