【DE】Pioneering Aerospace: Third Berlin Aviation Summit kicks off #ILA22


  • International high-level conference points the way to climate- neutral aviation
  • All leading industry stakeholders to attend – policymakers at European and federal level, representatives of industry, research, energy companies, finance and science
  • Countdown to #ILA22 – making the future of aviation something to experience



Aviation brings continents, cultures, industries and people together and is what our wealth, freedom and mobility are founded on. Against the backdrop of global climate change and with a growing demand for mobility worldwide, the aviation industry was quick to recognise it had a responsibility to protect the environment and actively confronted the challenges in question.

We are currently on the threshold of a future in which aviation will be climate-neutral and green. How to get there will be a key topic at ILA Berlin from 22 to 26 June. On 21 June, the eve of the opening of ILA, the third Berlin Aviation Summit will provide a wide platform for discussing this topic. International experts from politics, research, industry, global aviation, energy and finance will be meeting under the ILA heading ’Pioneering Aerospace’. Leading figures such as European Commissioner Gabriel, Federal Ministers Habeck and Wissing, and the CEOs Faury and Calhoun of the two big aircraft manufacturers Airbus and Boeing, as well as Chair of the DLR Executive Board Kaysser- Pyzalla and BDLI President Schöllhorn will discuss how the energy transition in the sky can function with sustainable aviation fuels. The CTO panel will debate the technical parameters of the aircraft of the future. The Future Air Transport panel will examine disruptive and holistic approaches to aviation. Climate-neutral and efficient navigation and the role of state actors will also be discussed. How climate-neutral aviation can be achieved by 2050 at minimal cost and on an international scale is a task that will require a coordinated effort by all stakeholders.


The conference programme shows how the industry’s who’s who is driving this key industry topic. Achieving the common goal of climate- neutral aviation by 2050 will not be the result of developing existing capabilities but of a technical revolution based on disruptive innovation and technology – driven by digitalisation and decarbonisation, the major developments dominating this century to date.


The Berlin Aviation Summit has established itself as the format for exchanging views and networking in order to drive forward climate- neutral aviation. This is the third time that this biennial high-level conference organised by the German Aerospace Industries Association (BDLI) and the German Aerospace Center (DLR) will provide a platform for pioneers who are aiming to and will change the future of aviation. The Federal Ministry for Economic Affairs and Climate Action and the European Commission are both partners of the Berlin Aviation Summit and #ILA22.


No ideas are off the table – on the contrary, what is important is ideas and results that can point aviation towards the future. For climate-neutral aviation is the common goal, and getting there will require a joint effort by society.
