Our purpose in action
Could hydrogen fuel-cell systems be the solution for emission-free aviation?
Products & Services
The holy grail of aircraft propulsion is to provide power without any emissions. One of the most promising candidates is the hydrogen fuel-cell. Here we explain how Airbus and its partners are helping to drive the technology forward to be ready for flight demonstrations.
Airbus prepares for its first megawatt-class hydrogen fuel-cell engine flight-test demonstrator…
Hydrogen-powered fuel-cell engine architecture with cryogenic storage could feature in an all-new zero-emission aircraft which will enter service by 2035. Airbus is already well on track to design, build and demonstrate such a megawatt-class propulsion system, in under four years from now…
The Moon in our sights
As the Orion spacecraft continues its historic mission around the Moon powered by the Airbus-built European Service Module (ESM), our engineers are already looking ahead to the future ‘lunar ecosystem’ – which is expected to represent a market value in the billions of euros during the next 20 years.
Meet Pablo, Airbus employee joining the Europe’s 2022 class of astronauts.
