Doha, Qatar: By 2030, nearly 100 percent of the aircraft by Airbus will operate on Sustainable Aviation Fuel, this was revealed by the company CEO, Guilllaume Faury on Sunday.
This was revealed on the sidelines of the annual AGM of IATA, which aims to focus on cutting carbon emissions in the aviation sector over the next couple of days.
Meanwhile, The International Air Transport Association (IATA) has launched IATA CO2 Connect, an online tool which provides the most accurate CO2 emission calculations for any given commercial passenger flight. IATA CO2 Connect responds to the growing demand for CO2 data transparency linked to airline specific and actual fuel burn information and load factors. This sets it apart from theoretical data models that already exist on the market today.
IATA CO2 Connect is available to companies within and outside the travel-value-chain, such as travel management companies (TMCs), travel agencies, airlines or multinational corporations. They can access the relevant CO2 emissions data and integrate it in a customized manner into their existing flight booking tools. Travel managers or travelers can easily see the CO2 emissions per routing. The tool also permits the consolidation of data for reporting purposes.
