The UK’s aviation industry has today pledged to achieve net zero carbon emissions by 2050. But how can it achieve this goal, while also matching Britain’s post-Brexit ambitions on connectivity and trade? One major reform could be the modernisation of British airspace, to make flight routes more fuel-efficient. On this podcast, Kate Andrews talks to a panel of experts on what modernisation means, the pitfalls along the way, and its impact on climate change and trade.
With Mark Swan, Head of the Airspace Change Organising Group, Conor Burns, Minister of State for International Trade; and David Learmount, veteran aviation journalist.
