2019 Aviation Trends

2019 Aviation Trends

While the aircraft caddy from DJ Products offers superior performance across a variety of conditions, not every aspect of the aviation industry is that consistent. Each year brings innovations and challenges, and how you respond can profoundly affect your business.

What’s ahead for the next twelve months? Here’s a look at the trends expected to shape the aviation industry in 2019.

Air Traffic Will Double

In a trend that’s continued since the 1970s, air traffic is projected to double by 2035. Reasons behind this trend are twofold:

1. Emerging markets and urbanization cause a shift in economic power, resulting in more people traveling by air.

2. Privatization and deregulation combine to drive air travel costs down.

Major Capacity Shortages

The downside of more air traffic is that it’s not supported by the current infrastructure. Plans are underway to increase facilities, but all regions are still expected to have capacity shortages of up to 50 percent only five years from now.

Green Initiatives

The global agreement known as CORSIA (Carbon Offsetting and Reduction Scheme for International Aviation) hits a crucial deadline in 2020, at which time aviation emission levels are required to stabilize. By 2050, emissions must be reduced to approximately 50 percent of 2005 levels.

Focus on Punctuality

As a means of reducing congestion and increasing customer satisfaction, airlines are implementing new performance measures with an emphasis on scheduling.

Airport Collaborative Decision Making (A-CDM)

More than two dozen major European airports have implemented A-CDM to facilitate real-time information sharing.
