Aviation is one of the fastest growing industries as well as transportation modes in the world. Global aviation contributes about 2% of global greenhouse gas emissions and supports 8% of the world economic activity in terms of GDP. With the phenomenal growth in air trafficking by the national and international airliners the total carbon space available for flying is getting progressively diminished and the consequential emission levels are also becoming alarming over passage of time.

Global mortality attributable to aircraft cruise emissions.
It is shown that aircraft cruise emissions impact human health over a hemispheric scale and provided the first estimate of premature mortalities attributable to aircraft emissions globally, and recommended that cruise emissions be explicitly considered in the development of policies, technologies and operational procedures designed to mitigate the air quality impacts of air transportation.
