What is sustainability? and How does it affect commercial air transport? Sustainability can be generally describe as ability to maintain and undergo any changes despite economic growth or recession. As part of progression of 21st century, human population are growing rapidly and in the other hand it will have been demonstrate a great impact on transportation sector. One of dominant transportation that have been used are commercial air transport. People tends to use air transport instead of other modes of transportation in order to travels towards a distance destination. In the old days, if you plan to travel to a destination is going to take a few hours, however with air transport is will significantly reduce your transit time. Air transport …show more content…
At the same time, it has been shown statistically that the world passenger numbers remain increasing in such rate and projected will be increase in future years (Air transport, passengers carried | Data | Graph. 2015. Air transport, passengers carried | Data | Graph.) Economic growth has play an important role on sustainability of commercial air transport. Air transport are occasionally being used as part of communication to sustain global or region economic growth. Development of commercial air transport can help to improve human living standards as well as connect the world together as one. The benefit of commercial air transport can be perceive only such sufficient of investment has been made towards air transport infrastructure such as (road, extension of airport and etc). This entirely can develop aircraft industry to provide necessary connections from internal towards international markets. An example will be Dubai invested multi-billions dollar into air transport infrastructure (Dubai to Invest $32 Billion in Airport to Meet Emirates Airline Growth – WSJ). Mexico natural resources and geographic location has making it greatest asset to ensure its country`s economy. A part from it, due to its location it can act as a hub connection between North and South America as well as connecting Asia and …show more content…
A balance between this element has to be contrived otherwise it likely will affect it`s sustainability. As with any industry, it has a great impact on environmental issue not to mention as well as air transport. Consequences, commercial air transport industry haves cause increases of pollution towards earth. One of the most significant pollution that is the air pollution. Exhaust from the turbine of the aircraft creates nitrous oxide, carbon dioxide and other harmful particles to human. Furthermore, this emission is part of contributor to global warming. Studies have shown that two percent of the world`s carbon dioxide is due to the results of aviation. Commercial air transport grows in order for it to meet the demanding of the industry, it has indirectly raise emission growth to 3 percent by 2050 (Aviation and climate change : Aviation: Benefits Beyond Borders. 2015). Many individual work around the clock and collaborate with competent authority(ICAO) to reduce such pollution and impacts towards global warming. ICAO has play a great role to ensure this approach to achievable. During 2010, the 37th Session of ICAO assembly several aim has been established, one of it will be sustaining the fuel efficiency improvement of two percent by 2020 and keeping the carbon dioxide emission to the same level. Such aim can be achieve, by improved technology, more effusion of
