FlyZero reveals British hydrogen airliner

FlyZero hydrogen airliner

The govt-backed FlyZero project has revealed a concept for a liquid hydrogen mid-size airliner capable of zero emission flight.

The aircraft was unveiled by the Aerospace Technology Institute (ATI) ahead of the fourth meeting of the Jet Zero Council, which is chaired by the Transport Secretary.

ATI says the airliner is capable of flying 279 passengers halfway around the world with just one stop to refuel.

The Jet Zero Council is a partnership between industry and government with the aim of delivering zero emission transatlantic flight within a generation.

Transport Secretary Grant Shapps said, “As we build back greener, it’s crucial that we place sustainability at the heart of the aviation industry’s recovery from COVID-19.

“This pioneering design for a liquid hydrogen powered aircraft, led by a British organisation, brings us one step closer to a future where people can continue to travel and connect but without the carbon footprint.

“I will continue to work closely with the Jet Zero Council to support the UK’s world-leading research in this sector, which will create green jobs, help us meet our ambitious net zero targets and lead the global transition to net zero aviation.”
