The Future of Air Travel: Navigating Pandemic Uncertainty and Embracing Sustainability

Few industries have faced greater disruption during the COVID-19 pandemic than the commercial airline industry. As carriers recover and rebuild, they are navigating significant financial and organizational challenges related, in part, to evolving health and safety protocols, technology outages, labor shortages and changes in customer behavior. At the same time, the industry is taking a hard look at its environmental footprint and is actively identifying ways to establish and invest in sustainability priorities – no small feat for an industry that accounts for 3% of global carbon emissions. Amelia DeLuca, Managing Director of Sustainability for Delta Air Lines, and Calin Rovinescu, Teneo Senior Advisor and former President and CEO of Air Canada, join Kevin Kajiwara for a discussion on the future of the global aviation industry, including its post-pandemic recovery, sustainability considerations heading into COP26, and what it all portends for related industries and consumers.
