What will the aviation industry look like 30 years from now? Changing economic, political and environmental pressures are set to combine and could shape a very different future for aviation, and carbon rationing, oil availability, reduced disposable income, population growth and the public’s acceptance of air travel could all have an impact. Four provocative scenarios showing how UK aviation could look in 2040 have been set out in a new report published by the Institution of Civil Engineers which was launched at this briefing; the report argues that the debate on UK aviation should be reopened and the future development of airport infrastructure addressed.
