The actuality of the topic was the fact that nowadays, the aviation has become an important
part in connecting people. It is enabling it to reach almost anywhere all over the world. With the entry of
low-cost airlines, aviation has become available to a larger segment, which has stimulated the industry.
During the elaboration of the subject, it became a fact that inquiry of the entire supply chain of
an airline also requires information that companies are reluctant to share with the outside world.
So, the paper is examining the value chain according to the information available. It is involved
to well-known European airline to the investigation – a low cost airline.
Over the past few decades, the negative changes in the global climate have been increasingly occupied by
people; that’s why it is prompting companies around the world to take the issue more seriously and impact
of their company’s ecological footprint. The research provides a comprehensive analysis of the value
chain of the aviation, focusing on sustainability, illustrating the complexity of the airline supply chain.
While current forecasts make positive predictions for civil aviation, changes in environmental impacts
could radically change this sensitive industry at any time.
