How AI is Causing Disruption at 35,000 feet

The aviation business is witnessing green shoots in the aftermath of the COVID-19 pandemic. Global economic recovery may also renew demand for freighter jets. Manufacturers need to respond by accelerating delivery of pending orders and gearing up for a spike in orders across commercial, freight and defense aircraft. At the same time, manufacturers must be cognizant about reducing carbon emissions to fulfil the pledge for climate-friendly transportation at the COP26 UN Climate Change Conference in Glasgow.
