Aviation Academy

Back to School with a lecture by Gert Meijer (Alumni)

An Alumni lecture can only have one topic in these strange time. It was very clear to us that this alumni lecture needs to be about the covid-19 crisis The covid-19 crisis is certainly the worst and most severe crisis that aviation has faced over the last decades. About every player in aviation is hit, and it will take the industry years to recover, to get back to “normal”.

But what is normal? Is an industry transporting 4,7 billion passengers against high CO2 emissions and with a low profitability normal? And should aviation go back to that “normal”? Or should aviation seek new ways and means, striving for profitability and sustainability. Exciting times ahead of us!
