easyJet has welcomed FlyZero’s announcement that it has developed a concept for a midsize aircraft powered by liquid hydrogen, enabling zero-carbon emission flights.
The concept aircraft would be capable of flying 279 passengers halfway around the world without a stop or anywhere in the world with just one stop to refuel.
easyjet says the midsize aircraft would store hydrogen at minus 250 degrees Celsius in cryogenic fuel tanks at the rear of the plane and in two smaller “cheek” tanks along the forward fuselage to keep the aircraft balanced.
easyJet says it sees hydrogen-powered aircraft playing an important role in its decarbonization pathway. read more ⇒
