New European Partnership for Clean Aviation to focus on short to medium haul aircraft

    Clean Sky programme head of strategic development Ron van Manen reported (06-Sep-2021) the new European Partnership for Clean Aviation, due to launch by the end of 2021, will focus on short to medium range and regional aircraft. Mr van Manen said a third of aviation’s emissions come from flights below 1500km, and two thirds from flights below 4000km. This means that focusing on aircraft serving these segments of air travel “can make a big, disruptive step sooner than long haul aviation”. In addition, new technological developments that we are starting to see emerge can be rolled out much more easily in short-medium range and regional aircraft. [more – original PR]
