The decarbonization of air transport is an essential pillar to achieve the "net-zero" or carbon neutrality objectives for 2050 in line with the European Green Deal. It coincides with a necessary recovery phase for the aviation sector, which has been heavily affected by the pandemic and it is seen by many as an opportunity to transform, renew and innovate. Key technologies resonating in the sector cover a wide span of solutions such as hybrid electric aircraft, hydrogen propulsion and using sustainable aviation biofuels. Bringing these technologies to maturity involves redesigning aircraft but also impacts value chains and infrastructure, since it affects the way energy is produced, stored, transported and consumed. In this panel we will have experts from the aviation and renewable energy sectors to analyze the current state of the technologies and their development challenges in the medium term to meet climate neutrality targets.

On the road to zero aviation emissions by 2050, there are some actions/initiatives that could be taken today to achieve immediate emission reductions in the sector. The two main ones are operational (ATM) and the use of sustainable fuels (SAF). Within the scope of this event, the use of SAF is certified and authorised to be 50% blended and by 2025 all operators will be obliged to use 2% SAF. However, at present, SAF accounts for only 0.1% of all aviation fuel used. Why is this the case? In this panel we will look at the proposals and learn about the actions that industry leaders in their respective fields are taking to reverse this situation and achieve the 'Fit for 50' targets for decarbonisation of aviation.

Nothing is transforming the MRO industry more than digitalization, which is driving the creation of innovative solutions. From an IT PoV, it is the most significant game changer of the decade . With new aircraft types producing 50 times more data and MRO services accounting for almost half of airline operating costs further cost reduction can only be achieved through MRO and operational efficiency driven by digitalization.
Accenture believes that Digital MRO will develop faster than the sector, reaching double digits in the coming years. This technology adoption will aid in rethinking operating efficiency, improving MRO cost transparency and driving talent change.

Airbus Procurement Detail Parts Strategy

Annabelle Lopez, Head of Metallic Parts Procurement, Airbus Atlantic

Annabelle Lopez

AIRBUS and its whole supply chain have been faced with significant challenges over the past few years, from major restructuring to a worldwide pandemic whilst still maintaining an exceptional backlog to be delivered across the next 10 years.
The objective is to deliver all these aircrafts; On time, On cost and On quality, this represents an industrial, commercial and technical challenge for the global supply chain and required Airbus to foster its detail part business around key strategic suppliers.
Beyond the industrial excellence which is expected from all our suppliers, some differentiating factors are also critical when selecting Airbus “D2P” strategic partners: globalization, innovation capacity, value creation, sustainable operational performance and continuous improvement.
The presentation aims at presenting the AIRBUS Detail Parts development over the past few years, reviewing its sourcing strategy and its implementation using the D2P and Bundle processes.
