Airline fleet ages

The aviation sector is strong in innovation and developing new technologies. For example, new navigation and communication systems are being developed, and airlines are looking for alternative fuels and weight-saving opportunities. Besides these developments, airlines are taking corporate social responsibility increasingly seriously, and are encouraging passengers to compensate for CO2 emissions. Renewing fleets is also part of technology development. The age of the fleet is an important aspect.
