EUROCONTROL has published its 2021 Climate Change Risks for European Aviation report, which aims to support the aviation community in their climate adaptation planning and details how climate change will progressively impact flight operations, airport capacity (due to sea level rise), flight times, choice of destination by tourists and fuel burn.

The Egis-lead study, co-authored with the UK Met Office, examines the operational, infrastructure and business risks of climate change for the European aviation sector, and for the first time quantifies those risks and impacts. It uses advanced scientific methods to deliver bespoke climate projections up to the 2050 time-horizon and GIS simulations to assess flooding risk.
