The International Air Transport Association (IATA) has released a Comparative Review of Aviation Net Zero Transition Pathways, which analyzes 14 leading roadmaps for achieving zero carbon emissions in aviation by 2050. The report compares the roadmaps in terms of their scope, assumptions, aviation energy demand, CO2 emissions, and the potential of various mitigation strategies such as new aircraft technologies, sustainable aviation fuels (SAFs), and operational improvements. The analysis shows that the pathways to achieving zero CO2 emissions differ depending on assumptions about technology development. Sustainable Aviation Fuels are expected to play a crucial role, ranging from 24% to 70% in CO2 reductions by 2050. 

The report also highlights the importance of technology advancements and operational efficiency, which together could contribute to about 30% of emissions reductions in 2050. The study emphasizes the need for market-based measures and carbon removal technologies to address residual emissions. Overall, the report provides valuable insights for stakeholders to formulate effective strategies to decarbonize aviation by leveraging multiple levers in different combinations.

The National Chamber of Aerotransports (Canaero), an organization representing airlines in Mexico, has stated that the new airports being built by the government are positive developments. However, they have also pointed out certain concerns regarding infrastructure and accessibility. Diana Olivares, President of Canaero and CEO of Latam Airlines Mexico and Central America, specifically mentioned the Felipe Angeles International Airport (AIFA) in Mexico City, the Tulum airport in the Mexican Caribbean, and the airport being constructed in Nayarit.

While these new airports are expected to ease congestion in existing ones, Olivares highlighted certain areas of improvement, such as maintenance of infrastructure at the Mexico City International Airport (AICM) and better accessibility to the AIFA. She also mentioned that airports in Merida, Nayarit, and Sonora have experienced growth, and emphasized the concentration of the market in cities like Mexico City, Guadalajara, Monterrey, Tijuana, Cancun, Puerto Vallarta, and Merida, where the majority of domestic flights are concentrated.

The president of the National Chamber of Aerotransports (Canaero), Diana Olivares, has expressed that revenues from the Airport Use Tax (TUA) collected by the Mexico City International Airport (AICM) should be allocated for the maintenance and development of the terminal, rather than being used to pay the debt to investors resulting from the cancellation of the Texcoco project. 

Olivares emphasized the need for a strong AICM, as it will continue to operate alongside the Felipe Ángeles International Airport (AIFA). Additionally, she mentioned the importance of connectivity between AICM, AIFA, and Toluca, with each airport catering to specific niches of travelers.

Olivares also highlighted the unresolved matters in the aviation industry, including the development of an aeronautical policy, sustainability through the use of Sustainable Fuels for Aviation (SAF), and the issue of taxes and collection. Olivares predicts a growth of 6 to 11% in the Mexican airline industry this year.

During President Andrés Manuel López Obrador’s term, 423 new air routes have been opened to Mexico, according to Miguel Torruco Márquez, Secretary of Tourism. The goal is to leave behind a revitalized tourism sector and establish Mexico as a major player in the industry. This collaboration between various entities has allowed the country to strengthen its position as a prominent destination internationally.

The number of registered travelers has also increased, with over 19 million passengers in the first quarter of this year, showcasing the growing interest of Mexicans in exploring their own country. This momentum has resulted in Mexico climbing up the ranks and reaching the sixth position in international tourist arrivals. The emphasis is on a personalized and sustainable approach to tourism, where technology plays a significant role.
