Airbus Works Towards Developing Hydrogen Hub In Paris

Airbus has expressed interest in exploring any opportunities generated by hydrogen at airports in Paris. Their aim is to find ways to decarbonise air transport activities. The plane manufacturing organisation has led a consortium that also includes the Paris region, Groupe ADP and Air France-KLM.

Striving for zero-emission aircrafts by 2035

This decision complies with the French government’s energy transition strategy which is supported by the European Commission which is striving for zero-emission aircrafts by 2035. The advent of hydrogen will significantly alter the way airport infrastructure is both operated and designed. Aware of this, the partners want to support all developments that help transform Paris airports into true “hydrogen hubs.”

Jean-Brice Dumont, executive vice president engineering at Airbus, to add: “Airbus is determined to drive a bold vision for the future of sustainable aviation, and to lead the transition to zero-emission commercial flight.Hydrogen is the one of the most promising technologies that will help us meet that objective – but we won’t be able to do it alone. This revolution will also require our regulatory and infrastructure ecosystems to change worldwide. Airports have a key role to play in enabling that transition, starting today, and we hope that this open innovation initiative will foster the development of creative projects and solutions.”
