That this House recognises the importance of the aviation industry to the national and regional economies of the UK; acknowledges the aviation industry's efforts to achieve sustainability and specifically its goal of net zero carbon emissions by 2050 in line with the Government's overall target for the UK; acknowledges the immense impact of the covid-19 pandemic on aviation and connected sectors including leisure and tourism; understands that there will likely be a lag in the recovery of these sectors when lockdown restrictions are lifted and that this will require continued support from Government; recognises the industry’s need for advance notice of changes to accommodate the long planning horizon for restoring services; notes with concern the announcement of large numbers of redundancies in the sector; is concerned about the impact of the covid-19 crisis on the future of the industry and its ability to achieve its sustainability objectives; notes the importance of Government measures such as the job retention scheme to aviation businesses; and urges the Government and the aviation industry to work together on a solution that provides the necessary support through the crisis, protects jobs and ensures that the industry can achieve sustainability.
