Civil aviation is at an inflection point. COVID-19 grounded global passenger air traffic just as new science revealed that aviation’s total global warming impact is more than double that of its CO2 emissions. Airlines’ largest corporate customers are demanding a transformation to net zero climate impact, and they have learned to do business virtually and remotely,... [Read More]
