Co-operation reaffirms Wizz Air’s ambitious sustainability commitment
Wizz Air has signed a Memorandum of Understanding (MoU) with Airbus to explore the potential for hydrogen-powered aircraft operations.
The cooperation means Wizz Air will analyse the potential for highly efficient, ultra-low-cost hydrogen powered operations. It will provide WIZZ with a much deeper understanding of how operating a zero-emission hydrogen aircraft could positively impact the airline’s future business model.
“At Wizz Air, we remain ambitious with our growth strategy to deliver on our commitment to make travel affordable for all, while delivering a great customer experience on-board one of the youngest and greenest fleets in Europe,” remarked Johan Eidhagen, Chief People & ESG Officer, Wizz Air.
“Understanding airline fleet and network performance enables us to better define the architectural characteristics for a future ZEROe aircraft as well as the impact on airports, ground support and route network,” noted Glenn Llewellyn, Vice President Zero Emission Aircraft, Airbus.
This MoU with Airbus builds on Wizz Air’s position as the most environmentally efficient choice of air travel, and the airline’s sustainability campaign, ‘Fly the Greenest,’ which urges passengers to make the right decision when they do decide to fly, a press communique concluded.
