Airbus, Avinor, SAS, Swedavia and Vattenfall have all signed the memorandum of understanding as part of the wider goal of decarbonising the aviation industry and achieving net-zero emissions by 2050.

Guillaume Faury, CEO of Airbus says, ‘Norway and Sweden are among the most demanding regions for aviation and have great potential for hydrogen production from renewable energy sources.’

The cross-country collaboration hopes to better understanding of hydrogen aircraft concepts and operations, supply, infrastructure and refuelling needs at airports.

The work will also identify the pathways to select the first airports to operate hydrogen-powered aircraft in both countries as well as the accompanying regulatory framework.
