As we know that there are more than 10000 airports assist the 15001 flights in all over the world. These flights cover the distance of approximately 15M kilometers. About 2.2×109 passengers use that source of transportation in order to get rid from heavy traffic and to save the time. As well as goods also transported through the air system. Aviation industry provides career opportunities to about 32millions in all over the world, it significantly contributes in the economy of the world. But there are many issues arising regarding to the increased trend of airline application. In that time of advance technology aviation industry have to face many challenges due to the increasing level of CO2 in the air which leads to global warming, also causes the destruction of natural habitats of living organisms hence increased possibility of endangered species especially that are living in open places. More and more airports are established on the increasing demand of people for air transportation. During the process of construction of an airports many things disturb like a piece of land comprises of many acres. With the increase in the population no. need for houses is also increasing. Now there are two challenges. Make arrangements for the survival of population like more houses, factories and industries. With the increase in population growth global warming and pollution also increases. Establishment of new airport in order to facilitate the people with comfortable transportation demands many acres of land as the result in order to meet the demand of land agricultural land is converting into other forms it also disturbs the life. A single air craft produces many tons of carbon dioxide, CO2 is the main source of global warming as it forms a layer around the earth crust as the result waves of longer wavelengths could not cross the barrier of CO2 and meanwhile they come back to earth surface and results in the heating up of earth.
