Three different designs have been unveiled by Airbus for what it claims will be the ‘world’s first’ zero-emission commercial jet.

With a range of up to 2,000 nautical miles, the planes named ZEROe, would be powered mainly with liquid hydrogen and could potentially carry up 200 passengers.

Representing a different approach to achieving a flight with zero emissions, each of the designs will be using technologies and aerodynamic configurations, the company suggests they could start flying by 2035 despite not having any detailed plans available.

Hydrogen as a power source could hold the key to the decarbonisation of aerospace and other industries, believes the company.

Airbus CEO, Guillaume Faury said: “This is a historic moment for the commercial aviation sector as a whole and we intend to play a leading role in the most important transition this industry has ever seen.

“Together with the support from government and industrial partners, we can rise up to this challenge to scale-up renewable energy and hydrogen for the sustainable future of the aviation industry.”
