Innovation and incentives needed to spur aviation emission reductions

Sustainable aviation fuel is a big part of stakeholders' eco-friendly aviation push, but they say they need the government's help to foster a competitive market in Canada.
The federal government must step in to provide financial assistance for the struggling airline sector and provide an evidence-based plan for a return to the skies. Anything less and the sector will not be able to recover.

The Canadian airline industry could come out of the pandemic looking very different. The fallout from the worst year in industry history could lead to a bifurcation of domestic and international carriers.
Aerospace is trending green, with some significant innovations that require updated aviation infrastructure and regulations.
Sending cash to the airlines won't raise the demand for plane tickets, and without that, airlines have little reason to rehire pilots or start flying cancelled routes, say some experts.

Opinion|Ramy Elitzur
