INTRODUCTIONSustainable aviation is a long term strategy which can be considered as an agglomerateapproach of UK aviation to manage different changes and to ensure the sustainable future of airlineindustry. The following approach has been launched in 2005 that brings together major players ofUK airlines, air navigation services providers, airlines manufactures and airports. It is a uniqueapproach for UK transportation sector where proactive alignment of different airlines andmanufactures, air traffic management etc. to solve the issues related to sustainability is there (Astrategy towards sustainability development of UK aviation,2015).The present study is related to sustainable aviation which explains about various aspectsrelated to the subject and major things that will be highlighted in the following research are term ofsustainability and its application in civil aviation, impact of aviation on environment, economic andsocial, range of sustainable issues and many other things.1.Sustainability and its application in civil aviationIn terms of ecology, sustainability can be defined as a process by which the existingbiological system always remains diverse and more productive. In the present time, this is a socialchallenge to maintain changes in lifestyle and ethical consumerism at international and nationallevel (Upham and et.al., 2012). On the other hand, civil aviation is related to air transport which canbe divided into two different segments, that is, non-military aviation (i.e. passenger and cargoflights which are operating on schedules basis) and private as well as commercial aviation (i.e.general aviation). Like any other public transportation, aviation industry cannot survive and sustainin the long term by using available very limited resources (Howarth and Griggs, 2013). Therefore, itis important for aviation industry to think about the way to improve and utilize the resources toachieve sustainable development. Hence, the applications of sustainability in civil aviation are asfollows.Modernizing the fleet’s size by developing fuel efficient aircraft.Exploring new technologies and different standards regarding reducing emission of gases.Bringing water saving and recycling plans to utilize the available resources in an appropriatemanner.Installing upward facing wings reduces the extra use of fuel.Identifying new energy resources for jets planes.Developing carbon offset plans and policies (How Some Airlines Are Striving towardSustainability,2015).4
