Poll: Will “plane shaming” over environmental emissions disrupt business aviation’s recovery?

In view of the COVID-19 pandemic, what will be the effect on business jet charter demand in the world and the Asia-Pacific region in particular? 

Peter Harbison, chairman emeritus of Aviation Week’s CAPA - Centre for Aviation, responds:  

In the short and medium term, demand for charter operations will be considerably increased. 

For many months to come, international travel is going to be complex. The combination of national health/immigration controls and very weak economic conditions will significantly constrain airline operations between countries. Frequencies will be lower, and many former routes will not be served at all, meaning circuitous, time-consuming and costly options. Air fares will generally be higher on long-haul routes, as fewer airlines will be operating.

As the aviation industry expands its support for initiatives to reduce its environmental impact, more countries, airlines and companies are making investments and working together to find ways to meet carbon neutrality targets.
