As part of this agreement, concluded on June 8, Wizz Air and Airbus will collaborate to study the ecosystem and infrastructures of hydrogen on an international scale. They will also analyze the potential impact of hydrogen-powered aircraft on Wizz Air’s fleet, operations and infrastructure (including its network, schedules and airports) based on factors such as aircraft range concerned and their refueling time.
Thanks to this partnership, Wizz Air will be able to collect crucial data on how the operation of hydrogen aircraft will impact its future activities.
For its part, Airbus is aiming for similar objectives in order to decarbonize its fleet. “This study conducted alongside Wizz Air is key to developing climate-neutral aviation by 2035“said Glenn Llewellyn, Airbus vice president for zero-emission aircraft.
