@airlinewriter US, UK vow to work toward “net zero” carbon emissions from aviation by 2050 through SAF, yada, yada. Greenpeace calls it “brazen greenwashing.” Separately, 20 airlines say 30% of short-haul fleet could be electric, hydrogen or hybrid in 9 years.
@ByERussell Austrian Airlines is “taking a decisive stand against the expected increase in competition from low-cost airlines,” with Summer 2022 schedule.
@ByERussell “Maritime shipping’s bottlenecks are causing a mode shift to air cargo” with air freight costs now only 5x maritime compared with 12x before the pandemic. Good news for air freight companies but a warning to shoppers: buy your holiday gifts early.
@CAPA_Aviation .@airasia Group COO Javed Anwar Malik: We will be driving to keep fares low, we will increase capacity and increase our network significantly. We’ll do that at a lower cost base, at a faster pace and in a smarter way. #CAPALive.
@CAPA_Aviation .@AlaskaAir Group VP Network and Alliances Brett Catlin: We’re probably 9-12 months out before we see a large recovery in business travel. #CAPALive.
