A Tale of Two Industries
IF YOU went to the recent AAAE
Annual Conference in July, it's easy
to get excited about the future of
the industry.
After an 18 month stasis where the industry
did all they could to keep the lights on thanks to
the pandemic, the conference made things feel a
little more normal again. Actually, almost more
normal than normal.
More than 1,500 people attended the show.
There were some new faces, some old faces and
some old faces in new places and old places with
new faces. People were happy, they were excited
to see each other and the general consensus was
built on moving past COVID and into the future.
It was easy to get caught up in the excitement,
but the grim reality of our situation is still lingering.
As I write this, the Delta variant of COVID is
gaining steam thanks to the asininity of those still
refusing to get the vaccine that leaves the rest of
us in a state of stupefaction.
But this isn't a column to rant about the
unvaccinated, it's a reminder that we're still not out
of the woods. This pandemic is still among us and
the new variants are threatening a fragile recovery.
Record amounts of people are traveling. We
saw the largest Fourth of July traffic ever. People
want out. Airlines, airports and everyone in
between want to get back to work. It's easy to get
caught up in the hype, but it's going to be crushing
if things have to shut down again before we even
get caught up speed.
It's important to look past the pandemic, but
we need leaders to keep their eye on the ball and
make sure we're doing our part as an industry to
keep travelers safe today and tomorrow. This means
building technology and hygiene measures into
airport operations plans for years to come.
It extends beyond public health as well. Anyone
at the conference felt the record setting 120 degree
heat gripping the Las Vegas area. If the ariel view
of what was once Lake Mead didn't make you
think climate change issues need to be addressed
now, the inside of the crowded terminals at LAS
with AC units struggling to keep the air even semicomfortable
should have.
The aviation industry is on the cusp
of a travel boom that could transform
our society forever, but failing to keep
in mind issues we need to address today
is going to create another self-inflicted
wound that could take a generation to
clean up.
