A4E Aviation Summit 2020 (Panel 2)


Panel 2: Pushing the Limits on Sustainable Aviation Policymaking in Europe

Air transport, just like any other sector of the European economy will need to contribute to the European Green Deal.

What are the actions needed to achieve sustainable aviation? What role should industry, policy-makers and passengers play in supporting the planned objective of a climate-neutral economy by 2050? How can we ensure that air transport reduces its environmental footprint while maintaining connectivity and affordability for travellers?

About A4E

Airlines for Europe (A4E) is Europe’s largest airline association, based in Brussels. A4E works with policymakers to ensure aviation policy continues to connect Europeans with the world in a safe, competitive and sustainable manner. As a key initiator of aviation’s Destination 2050 roadmap, A4E and its members committed to achieve Net Zero carbon emissions for their own operations by 2050. With a modern fleet of over 3,200 aircraft, A4E airlines carried over 270 million passengers in 2021 — down from 700 million in 2019 due to the COVID-19 pandemic. Each year, A4E members with air cargo and mail activities transport more than 3.7 million tonnes of goods, life-saving vaccines and essential medical equipment to more than 360 destinations either by freighters or passenger aircraft.
