The 5 trends that are redefining the aeronautical industry by 2024

Updated: Dec 7, 2023

A panorama of innovation and transformation in the sky

Welcome to an early flight into the future, where we will explore the five trends that are about to transform the aeronautical industry in the year 2024. This exciting Journey will take us beyond the clouds, plunging us into a horizon where technology and operations intertwine to shape a new era of aviation. Ready to take off into tomorrow?

At the core of these transformations is Sustainable Technology, a force that redefines our environmental commitment. Real data indicates that, by 2024, the adoption of greener technologies will reduce carbon emissions by a significant 15%, marking a crucial milestone towards cleaner, more sustainable flight. But this is just the first stop on our journey to tomorrow's aviation trends.

Learn about the Five Trends that Will Transform the Aeronautical Industry

1. Hybrid Propulsion Electric Aircraft:

The transition towards electrification in aviation has gained significant momentum, with several leading manufacturers developing prototypes of hybrid-powered electric aircraft. These aircraft combine electric motors and traditional engines to achieve greater energy efficiency and emissions reduction. According to data from the International Air Transport Association (IATA), the global fleet of electric aircraft is expected to reach 10% by 2024, marking a significant milestone in aviation sustainability.

2. Digitalization and Connectivity:

Digitalization has become a fundamental pillar to optimize operations and improve the passenger experience. With the widespread implementation of technologies such as the Internet of Things (IoT) and artificial intelligence (AI), airlines are improving fleet management, predictive maintenance and service personalization. In this sense, it is expected that 90% of airlines and aeronautical services companies will adopt advanced digital solutions by 2024, according to a report by the specialized consulting firm AirInsight.

3. Development of Supersonic Aircraft:

Nostalgia for the supersonic era is resurfacing with the development of aircraft capable of reaching speeds of Mach 2 or even higher. Leading companies such as Boom Supersonic and Aerion Corporation are leading the charge in creating of supersonic passenger aircraft, which could significantly reduce flight times on intercontinental routes. This change could accelerate global transportation and open new business possibilities.

4. Expanded Use of Sustainable Biofuels:

Pressure to reduce greenhouse gas emissions in aviation is driving the use of sustainable biofuels. By 2024, it is projected that at least 15% of the fuel mix used by the global airline industry will be made up of biofuels, according to data from the United States Federal Aviation Administration (FAA). This trend will not only contribute to emissions reductions, but will also encourage continued research into alternative fuel solutions.

5. Focus on Sustainability and Efficiency:

Sustainability has become a central concern for the aviation industry. From manufacturing lighter aircraft to designing more efficient routes, airlines are taking holistic approaches to reducing their environmental footprint. According to the European Aviation Safety Agency (EASA), 80% of airlines are expected to implement specific measures to improve sustainability and operational efficiency by 2024.

For a more detailed and expert view on the trends that are reshaping the aviation industry in 2024, we turned to Rodrigo Perdomo, CEO of Central Aerospace.

According to Perdomo, "We are in the middle of a revolution in aviation, and these trends are setting the course towards a more efficient and sustainable industry. Electrification and hybrid propulsion are especially exciting as we are seeing a transition to a new era of more energy-efficient aircraft."

"Digitalization also plays a crucial role,", continues Rodrigo Perdomo. "The ability to collect and analyze data in real time is fundamentally changing the way airlines operate, from aircraft maintenance to route management. This not only improves operational efficiency but also elevates the passenger experience to new levels."

In conclusion, the aeronautical industry is in a phase of unprecedented transformation, driven by innovation, sustainability and adaptation to changing market demands. These five outlined trends not only define the aviation landscape in 2024, but also lay the foundation for a more efficient and sustainable future in the skies.
