United hopes to fly electric aircraft by 2026

United Airlines has conditionally agreed to take 100 19-seat electric aircraft with a potential to fly short-haul routes of up to 250 miles (402kms) as early as 2026.

The deal is part of an investment by United Airlines Ventures, along with clean energy investor Breakthrough Energy Ventures and United regional partner Mesa Airlines,  in electric aircraft startup Heart Aerospace.

The agreement to take the 100 aircraft is conditional on the aircraft meeting the US carrier’s safety business and operating requirements and is part of wider moves to reduce greenhouse gas emissions by 100 percent by 2050 without relying on traditional carbon offsets.
