The Alliance for the Sustainability of Air Transport in Spain (AST) launches with the first meeting of its Executive Committee in which the selection process has been agreed for the election of the person who will be in charge of the Presidency of this body, in addition to the action plan of the working groups and work schedule.

Specifically, today was held the first meeting of the governing body of the AST made up of Aena, AESA, Airbus, ALA, AOP, CEOE, ENAIRE and IATA and has taken the first step after the constitution of this newly created Alliance to respond to the greater present and future challenge of aviation, sustainability, but from a triple perspective: environmental, economic and social. 

In particular, they have attended: Ana Salazar, Aena’s Sustainability Director; Marta Lestau; EASA Aircraft Safety Director; Juan José Cela, director of institutional relations for Airbus commercial aircraft in Spain; Javier Gándara, President of ALA; Andreu Puñet, Managing Director of AOP; Juan Cierco, Chairman of the Board of Tourism of the CEOE; Estíbaliz Salazar, Head of the Sustainability and Institutional Relations Division of ENAIRE; Ángeles Pozo, Assistant Director for Airports, Passenger Cargo and Security for Europe at IATA.

This Alliance aims to promote the route for the decarbonisation of the air sector by promoting the identification and implementation of new technologies and innovative processes in a rational and orderly manner to ensure the sustainability of the aviation sector in the long term.

It is a collaboration mechanism composed of entities from different disciplines, beyond the aviation field, such as the business, academic and third sector. The objective is to provide a cross-cutting response that contributes to moving forward in this transition towards a more sustainable mode of transport to which the aviation sector is committed. In short, an Alliance open to add more voices to help in this objective and to count on the Administration to achieve the necessary public-private collaboration to respond to this challenge.

The Alliance for the Sustainability of Air Transport (AST) consists of more than 900 companies or entities that generate more than 294,000 direct jobs and a turnover of more than 80.580 million euros.
