Airbus reportedly favours 100 seat turboprop for zero-emissions concept

    Airbus reportedly favours a 100 seat turboprop regional aircraft with a range of around 1000nm as its preferred option for a new hydrogen-powered aircraft, as this is considered the most feasible for meeting its target for a zero-emission commercial airliner (Bloomberg, 11-Feb-2021). Airbus has unveiled three concepts for hydrogen powered aircraft, with the turboprop design being the smallest and the shortest ranged. The manufacturer wants to have a zero-emission aircraft in service around the middle of next decade. Airbus stated it intends to make a decision on its zero-emission aircraft concept between 2024 and 2025.
