Elfly Signs LOI with Lofoten for Zero-emission Aviation

Our Bureau - : Dec 19, 2023 - : 6:19 am

Elfly Group, developers of all-electric seaplane programme ‘Noemi’, (No Emissions) signed a Letter of Intent with the Lofoten Green Islands, a private-public partnership for sustainable development, in the Lofoten Archipelago in Arctic Norway.

The organisations have agreed to pursue the development of zero-emission regional aviation together. The group recognises that Elfly’s ambitions can contribute to Norway achieving its stated goals for domestic aviation to be emission-free by 2040 and that Elfly can help Lofoten become a pilot region for zero-emission aviation.

Lofoten is an early mover embracing the UN’s climate goals under its roadmap for the Lofoten Green Islands. Its sustainability programme was launched in February 2022 under a partnership between the Lofoten Council, Lofotkraft and Destination Lofoten.

“We are very proud to have the Lofoten Regional Council on board with us on this journey, as we work to develop a product which suits their needs in the region, supporting travel and tourism, but also addressing the local transport needs for Lofoten inhabitants. The agreement shows that with our electric seaplane concept we meet that need, and that we have interested customers. Seaplanes will return!,” says Eric Lithun, CEO and founder, Elfly Group.
