Increased competition pressure on pay and working conditions in the aviation industry in Norway and the rest of Europe
The Europeanization of the aviation market has put strong competitive pressure on all stakeholders. As a result, Norwegian cabin crew have become a low-paid occupational group. Conditions are worsened by part-time work, and few Norwegians are staying for long in the occupation. This is one of...
After Norwegian airlines got access to the European aviation market cabin crew have become a low-paid occupational group. As a result of the EU/EC's three aviation packages in 1986, 1990 and 1992, the EEA area became a common aviation area with harmonized regulation. Through its EEA agreement,...
Electric flight route Stavanger-Bergen – Commitment to testing electric planes is socially beneficial
An investment in a demonstration case with electric planes on the Stavanger-Bergen route in the 2020s can accelerate electric aircraft in Norwegian aviation and thus have a greater net societal benefit than not investing in electric aviation. This is the main conclusion in a new report from the...
TRA VISIONS is a contest for young and senior researchers in the field of transport in Europe. It is organised every other year on behalf of the European Commission in connection with the Transport Research Arena (TRA) conference. VTI was a partner of the consortium that organised TRA VISIONS...
The Nordic region can make aviation more sustainable by collaborating on a funding mechanism for renewable fuels financed by common passenger taxes. In January 2019 the Nordic prime ministers signed a declaration on a common Nordic vision for carbon neutrality and particularly committed their...
Large, electrified aircraft is far off in the future. On the other hand, there may be potential for a new market with smaller regional flights. These are the conclusions of a literature survey made by researchers at VTI. Greenhouse gas emissions from the aviation sector have increased from just...
It is hardly a secret that aviation must reduce its negative impact on the climate. This will require either less air travel or a breakthrough in sustainable aviation fuels. Emissions per flight are decreasing, thanks to more efficient engines, lighter aircraft, more seats per aircraft, and...
