State of Industry: Presentation and Data Insights

Exhibit Hall Theater 1

Business aviation has experienced an era of change since 2020. On the one hand, the general loss of air transport connectivity during the COVID pandemic triggered a significant and unprecedented growth in on-demand aviation. On the other hand, the global warming crisis has given business aviation, at least in Europe, the unenviable role of being the ultimate symbol of the worst in terms of carbon footprint. To decarbonise the industry, it is certain that air transport will see its price increase as much as the pressure from society for more and more ‘green’ alternatives. In this context, the predictability of trends and market conditions has never been more complex. Discover the latest data analysis from market intelligence experts, which will provide insights into current and future trends.

A Basic Guide to Offsetting

Innovation Zone

When carbon emissions are unavoidable, business aviation operators, charter companies and brokers can offset flight emissions to become carbon neutral. In this session, we will discuss how voluntary offsetting works and how the industry is tackling the most common questions. Do offset projects effectively deliver the carbon benefits they promise? How much does offsetting really cost? How can we ensure that offsetting is not perceived as “greenwashing?” Can we guarantee offsetting will not limit or slow down decarbonization?

15:00 – 16:00
Sustainable Aviation Fuel (SAF): A Pathway to Drive Down Carbon Emissions

Innovation Zone

Meeting our industry’s commitment of reaching net zero carbon emissions by 2050 requires fuel solutions to be brought to the market. How is sustainable aviation fuel produced and distributed, and can it be accounted for? Is there really such a thing as sustainable jet fuel? Does sustainable aviation fuel actually reduce carbon emissions of a flight? In summary, we will discuss the efforts and strategies to date, but we will also debate the key challenges surrounding SAF.

15:00 – 16:00
