12:32 am
. their industries key figures are meeting in boston this week with many carriers expecting to lose even more money than previously forecast. demand for flights remains low after an immediate collapse. at the start of the pandemic, the number of kilometers traveled by passengers. is there less than half what it used to be? it means that after a net loss of a $126000000000.20, the most recent estimates sees airlines in the international air transport association losing another 47000000000 this year. so putting it in perspective, the number of planes in the sky has have from a global passenger fleet of more than 230000 strong in 2019 sh to just over a 115000. now. wow, it really elizondo is live at that summit in boston for us. it's okay. well, how worrying are these financial losses for the industry? can they survive them?
12:33 am
well they have so far, but it's certainly been crippling as you could tell from those numbers. and the statistics that you just read there and the international air transport association is projecting that the losses will be about 11 to 12000000000 dollars next year. that's even as air travel continues to increase over the coming months as a expect, as more vaccines are rolled out around the world. the bottom line is, is that the last 2 years has been the worst economic crisis for the global airline industry. it is getting better, but the fact it's getting better is not too great in a way because as you can tell, they are still suffering from billions of dollars in losses. interestingly enough, one of the areas that is doing quite well is a cargo. there's just simply less plain spy and around the world. the demand for products is increased and so cargo is actually above pre pandemic levels. but
12:34 am
the bottom line is the airline industries and airline executives that are here at this meeting say they've got through the worst part of this economic crisis for the industry. and they hope that business travel continues to pick up within the next year or 2. and at leisure travel continues as well to pick up and at the losses will be able to be cut in the coming years. gabrielle, i mean, obviously the pandemic, we all hope is going to get better, but climate change will remain a priority. obviously an air travel is a great pollution. so how does the industry have planned to deal to respond to that challenge? ah, well, the international air transport association and the $280.00 airlines that are part of it. i said that they want to get to a carbon neutral by 2015. now that's an aspirational goal that they hope to achieve,
12:35 am
but it's going to be very difficult. and as we can tell here at this very meeting already, chinese carriers have said they do not necessarily feel they need to abide by that . and it's hard to meet any sort of environmental targets or emission targets without china involved. so it's going to be very difficult. there are different plans, different options, everything from a biofuels to electric plains, even by one carrier, united airlines, about a 100 electric plains run electricity and not fuel. but the bottom line is, it is going to be very difficult, but there is a recognition here by all airline executives that something needs to be done. because if the airline industry in the world was a country, it would be the world's 6th largest emissions emitter. so what does need to be done over the coming years? it's a pretty staggering statistic that gabrielle is on that with the latest staff that
