Airbus Proposes Planes Fueled by Liquid Hydrogen

LONDON: Airbus is showing three concepts for “the world’s first zero-emission commercial aircraft which could enter service by 2035.” They all run on hydrogen, which Airbus calls a clean aviation fuel. According to the press release:

“’These concepts will help us explore and mature the design and layout of the world’s first climate-neutral, zero-emission commercial aircraft, which we aim to put into service by 2035,’ said [Airbus CEO] Guillaume Faury. ‘The transition to hydrogen, as the primary power source for these concept planes, will require decisive action from the entire aviation ecosystem. Together with the support from government and industrial partners we can rise up to this challenge to scale-up renewable energy and hydrogen for the sustainable future of the aviation industry.'”
