Consequences of Climate Change That Impact the Aviation Industry
In addition, climate change is expected to lead to increased drought, impacts on the supply of water and energy, and changes in wildlife patterns and biodiversity. Consequences for aviation include reduced aircraft performance, changing demand patterns, potential damage to infrastructure, loss of capacity and schedule disruption.
Numerous cases are constantly emerging on weather related aviation accidents overshadowing other factors such as human error, air traffic control and maintenance issues. Despite air transport being regarded as one of the safest modes of transport today, accidents still occur and weather related ones are increasing at an alarming rate. It is perhaps the industry significantly affected by weather conditions than any other transportation mode. Winds, fogs, thunderstorms, fogs, snowstorms all play a part in how the weather affects the industry.
Even though vehicles and aircraft are becoming more efficient, but the fact remains that people are driving and flying more than ever. This increases the miles traveled and transport-related emissions. In short, airline carbon footprint is growing at a rapid pace and it must be addressed.
Moreover, the company in order to be able to develop and produce what customers demand, is suggested to carry out some customer-satisfaction and evaluation researches which will be focusing on aspects such as customer satisfaction, services assessment, opinion about the prices. Then the company will be able to improve any weaknesses.
