It is known when the first hydrogen-powered planes will appear
One of the largest aircraft manufacturers, Airbus, has said that it hopes to produce its first hydrogen-powered plane by 2035. According to Reuters, some industry representatives and analysts consider this goal "ambitious".
Meanwhile, Air New Zealand is also exploring ways to use low-carbon technology, particularly in electric, hybrid, or hydrogen-powered planes, to reduce emissions as early as 2030. It has signed a memorandum of understanding with Airbus to study the impact of hydrogen aircraft on its infrastructure.
Aviation now accounts for about 2.5 percent of the world's carbon emissions, so airlines are looking for ways to reduce the negative impact on the climate. However, Airbus said in June that most airlines will rely on traditional jet engines until at least 2050. Hydrogen-powered planes will focus primarily on regional and short-haul traffic, starting in 2035.
