Our pioneering spirit is alive and well as we explore new, cleaner propulsion technologies. 

Today, zero-emission flight is closer to reality than ever before. At Airbus, we are committed to developing, building and testing alternative-propulsion systems – powered by electric, hydrogen, solar and even hybrid solutions that bridge more than one of these energy sources – to enable the aviation industry to reduce the CO2 emissions of commercial aircraft, helicopters, satellites and future urban air mobility vehicles.
