Airbus and ACI EUROPE have signed a Memorandum of Cooperation to enhance cooperation in the area of new aircraft energy ecosystems. The joint goal is to enable the broader use of Sustainable Aviation Fuels (SAF) and to develop the hydrogen ecosystem required for the zero-emissions aircraft technologies, by preparing the associated supporting airport infrastructure and bringing these to market.
In the signing of this agreement, Airbus and ACI EUROPE acknowledge that increased focus on reducing fuel consumption and environmental impacts is a key driver for decarbonising air transport.
The collaboration will promote the set-up of technical standards and guidance facilitating the uptake of SAF, hydrogen and electric-powered aircraft.
This MoC also aims to make proposals for the emergence of a satisfactory policy and regulatory framework to meet environmental and industrial needs so that zero emission flight becomes a reality in the foreseeable future.
