Hydrogen jet design brings emissions-free flying a step closerHomepage
Flying is one of the most harmful activities for the climate most of us will ever do. But the dream of climate-friendly air travel came a step closer to reality when engineers unveiled a revolutionary design for a hydrogen-powered airliner. Developed by a team of experts collaborating in the British government-backed FlyZero project, the proposed aircraft could carry 279 passengers non-stop from London to San Francisco at the same speed and comfort level as today’s jetliners. The liquid hydrogen fuel used in the engines can be produced and burned without emitting any planet-warming carbon dioxide – pointing to the way to a new era of green aviation.
