The Future of Flying – Is Sustainable Air Travel Possible?


This is the first vlog in the series to explore sustainability in aviation. I traveled to Amsterdam to learn how KLM is taking a leading role in creating a more sustainable future for aviation.

In the video, I was shown how an airline can recycle plastic bottle onboard to create useful tools by 3D printing. I learnt about the challenge of developing sustainable aviation fuel. KLM cabin crew showed me how they’re recycling and reuse plastic materials in the food tray. A pilot also explained many ways they could reduce fuel burn.

I traveled to Technical University of Delft to see the design of Flying V, a futuristic V shape aircraft. i was shown the mock up model which should have its first flight this year. I was also shown many interesting future cabin design ideas such as flat bed in economy and staggered seating.

    Just to give you some background in this vlog. When I was traveling to Amsterdam in December (before flying Xiamen Air to China) I saw how sustainability as a much discussed topic. I contacted KLM, a leader in this field if they can show me what they've done so far and what they are planning to do for the future. This is the first vlog in the series to explore and learn about sustainability in aviation. I will look at other airlines during the year to see many different approach and initiatives in this relatively new field.

  35. Martin Jönsson says

    Really shit ideas with the engines on top of the wings due to ice falling off into the engines like SAS Flight 751 crash Arlanda sweden. Passenger planning is completely unrealistic from economical perspective and the cramped spacing for health and safety due to brace position and potential virus pandemic.
