Scandinavian Airlines (SAS) has announced a partnership with the aerospace giant Airbus, with the purpose of researching the hybrid and electric aircraft of the future. The two finalized a joint memorandum of understanding on the project, with SAS stating in their press launch that it will highlight on data into the eco-system and infrastructure specifications of hybrid-electric aircraft on a large scale commercial level.

 

“We are delighted to be embarking on this partnership with SAS,” said Grazia Vittadini, Airbus Chief Technology Officer. “Leveraging our respective expertise to investigate the potential of hybrid-electric propulsion opportunities in our aviation eco-system.” The bond of the airline and the aircraft manufacturer will help to make clear the specifications for hybrid and electric aircraft down the line. SAS’ interest in the technology is inspired by its focus on limiting emissions and sustainable flying. The company sees the research as part of the next step beyond its current target of reducing emissions 25% by 2030, which it hopes to achieve via fleet modernization and biofuels. Rickard Gustafson, CEO of SAS, said: “We are proud of our dedicated sustainability work and are now pleased that Airbus has chosen SAS to partner up with us for this future project. If this becomes a reality, it will transform emissions.”
