The aim of the international network is to research, develop and expand the infrastructure for the use of hydrogen.

The network’s membership already includes members from the airports, airlines and energy sectors in 11 countries including France, the USA, UK, Singapore, Japan, South Korea and New Zealand.

The cooperation in Hamburg includes Linde, a global industrial gases and engineering company.

Karine Guénan, Vice President ZEROe Hydrogen Ecosystem, says, 'We welcome Hamburg Airport as the latest 'Hydrogen Hub at Airport' member. Hamburg Airport’s expertise in hydrogen will be an invaluable asset in our ZEROe Ecosystem journey to build a future where aviation will be powered by decarbonised hydrogen. The journey to prepare airport infrastructure to support hydrogen and low-carbon aviation begins on the ground with these partnerships.'

The Hydrogen Hub at Airports programme was launched by Airbus in 2020.
