The development of several effective COVID-19 vaccines less than a year after the coronavirus was first discovered was a historic triumph for science and human ingenuity. Distributing those vaccines around the world calls for one of the biggest logistics operations ever.
Numerous surveys have found that travellers are eager to return to the skies as soon as it is both safe and allowed to do so. And following the worst year in commercial aviation history, airlines are eager to welcome passengers back on board. Can ‘COVID passports’ speed up the process?
Entering 2021, the worst of the aviation industry's COVID-19 downturn may be behind us, but the pandemic's impact is not. Just how long its effects will linger is an open question, but the road to recovery looks long and winding.
The end of 2020 does not mean the end of the most challenging period in the aviation industry’s history. As the industry looks to rebound in 2021, it will have to contend with a variety of risk factors, both COVID-related and otherwise.
From big drops in airline spending to the challenges of maintaining parked fleets and preparing for the hastened arrival of next-generation aircraft, the pandemic has had major and potentially long-lasting effects on the maintenance, repair and operations (MRO) industry.
Commercial airlines and cruise ship operators know that passenger concerns about onboard safety aren’t likely to go away any time soon. Advanced air purification systems could go a long way toward bringing customers back to both industries.
Regardless of whether your airline already has a potable water weight management process or has no process at all, it's still possible to improve and optimise the system—and thus capture significant fuel burn savings.
Whether you’re an airline executive, an operator, or ground crew, a potable water management system offers many advantages. International Water-Guard’s Pre-Select system provides substantial fuel savings as a result of reduced water weight.
Proper management of potable water on an aircraft can provide substantial ROI in the form of fuel burn savings and carbon emission reductions. But how easy is a water management system to set up and use?
