Mobility

Urban Air Mobility", i.e. the new mobility in urban airspace, is taking shape: New companies and innovative projects are in the starting blocks.

Aviation on the way to the green (2021/06/22)

The aviation industry wants to reduce pollutant emissions. In the short term, modernisation of fleets and sustainable fuels will help; in the long term, hydrogen is moving into focus.

The aviation industry has several measures at its disposal to improve its climate footprint

Although aviation is only responsible for about 3% of global CO2 emissions, it is considered a significant source of greenhouse gas emissions. In the course of global climate protection efforts, these are to be significantly reduced in the coming years and brought to zero in the long term. In addition to improvements in wing, tail unit and fuselage technologies, the focus is particularly on aircraft propulsion technology. At present, this is mainly based on the combustion of fossil fuels, which releases CO2. However, water vapour, nitrogen oxide emissions, direct and indirect aerosol effects and condensation trails also have a negative impact on the climate. The climate impacts of the non-CO2 effects are strongly dependent on the flight altitude, the geographical location and the time of emission (i.e. the daily or seasonal cycle and the current weather conditions).

"Urban Air Mobility": Multicopter & Co approach the starting field (2021/07/12)

Urban Air Mobility", i.e. the new mobility in urban airspace, is taking shape: New companies and innovative projects are in the starting blocks.

Clear & concise

  • Urban Air Mobility, i.e. the new mobility in urban airspace, is taking shape: New companies and innovative projects around the use of unmanned, electrically powered flight systems are in the starting blocks.
  • Air taxis, airport shuttles and intercity flights are the focus of the competition for the best drive concepts.
  • Significant market growth from 2030 onwards is expected to be accompanied by industry consolidation.

Aviation: The long road to recovery (2021/04/12)

Aviation is suffering worldwide from the consequences of the Corona pandemic, but the recovery should gain momentum in the second half of the year.

Clear & concise

  • Global aviation still suffering massively from the Corona pandemic
  • Recovery of the industry will gain momentum in the second half of 2021 and take full effect in the coming year; this is due to high pent-up demand and increasing availa-bility of vaccines.
  • Consolidation process in Europe gains momentum
