Wizz Air has signed a Memorandum of Understanding (MoU) with Airbus to explore the potential for hydrogen-powered aircraft operations.

Wizz Air will analyse the potential for highly efficient, ultra-low-cost hydrogen powered operations. The objective of the MoU is to identify both operational and infrastructure opportunities and challenges of hydrogen aircraft.

“We believe that growth and sustainability are not mutually exclusive, with leading-edge new technology paving the way to more sustainable air travel. This momentous agreement with Airbus will advance sustainable aviation across the globe through development of ultra-efficient operations and business models of the future,” said Johan Eidhagen, Chief People & ESG Officer, Wizz Air.

“We are very pleased to have Wizz Air on board to collaborate on the ongoing research and development into the requirements for hydrogen aircraft operations within a hydrogen powered aviation ecosystem,” said Glenn Llewellyn, Vice President Zero Emission Aircraft, Airbus. “Understanding airline fleet and network performance enables us to better define the architectural characteristics for a future ZEROe aircraft as well as the impact on airports, ground support and route network.”
