Aviation Benefits 2019 – Industry High Level Group Report
This 2019 edition of the Industry High Level Group (IHLG)’s Aviation Benefits report coincides with the 75th anniversary of the Convention on International Civil Aviation. At this juncture, the report provides crucial insights into the realization of the vision that has underpinned the
Convention and the development of the global aviation sector throughout the decades: to promote safe, secure, efficient, economically-viable and environmentally responsible air transport as a means to foster international peace and encourage worldwide development.
Today, 1,303 scheduled airlines operate over 31,717 aircraft, serving 3,759 airports thanks to the support of 170 air navigation services providers1. The aviation sector is distinct in that it is the only regular means of passenger and cargo transport to be covered by a global de-carbonization goal.
