Aaron Robinson has managed United Airlines’ Eco-Skies program since 2016. During this time, United has been recognized as Air Transport World’s Eco-Airline of the Year twice, Newsweek’s highest-ranked airline globally for environment and the highest-rated U.S. airline by Carbon Disclosure Project five years in a row. He created the Eco-Skies Alliance, the world’s largest corporate customer sustainable aviation fuel (SAF) program, and organized the first two airline flights to use 100% SAF.
Aaron’s sustainability career began in operational fuel efficiency at Northwest Airlines and continued at post-merger Delta Air Lines, where he oversaw all aspects of compliance with the EU ETS, represented the airline in developing its climate change strategy, and led a variety of internal sustainability programs.
Aaron has also worked in airport operations, financial analysis, operational reliability and cargo safety. In addition to serving at Air Transport World, the Metropolitan Washington Airports Authority and Rolls-Royce, he also founded SimAirline.net, an online flight simulation organization. He holds a BA in Economics from Carleton College, an MBA from The University of Texas, and a private pilot license.
