Avinor CEO says electric short haul aircraft tender could be presented in a ‘year or two’

    Avinor CEO Dag Falk-Petersen reiterated Norway‘s commitment for all-electric short haul aviation operations by 2040 (Reuters, 23-Mar-2018). “In my mind, there’s no doubt that by 2040 Norway will be operating totally electric”, he said. Mr Falk-Petersen added: “Airbus told us they need a customer and they need a market… and we can offer them both… Of course they need a bigger market and more customers”. Mr Falk-Petersen said Avinor could present a tender “within a year or two to the market to commercialise electric aircraft”.
