Cranfield Aerospace Solutions join the Alliance for Zero-Emission Aviation (AZEA)

Cranfield Aerospace Solutions is delighted to announce its participation in the Alliance for Zero-Emission Aviation. CAeS joins the likes of easyJet, Airbus and Safran in preparing for the advent of zero emission aircraft.

The European Committee announced the initial list of 74 entities from across the aeronautical industry, including companies, airlines, aircraft lessors, airports, energy providers, business associations and civil society organisations. You can view the 74 members here.

“The Alliance for Zero Emission Aviation aims to prepare the aviation ecosystem for the entry into service of hydrogen-and electric-powered aircraft, to ensure that air transport contributes to Europe’s 2050 climate neutrality objective. It will gather representatives of aircraft manufacturers, airlines, airports, energy companies and fuel providers, standardisation and certification agencies, passenger and environmental interest groups and regulators.

“The broad representation of actors across the air transport system in its membership validates the Alliance’s core notion that the benefits of zero-emission aircraft can only be realised through a joint effort by all stakeholders. With a total of 74 members having joined in this first wave from the EU and beyond, the Alliance has a strong basis to work on a roll-out plan for hydrogen and electric aircraft and to plan the next steps in implementation.” Full European Commission release here.

The first General Assembly for the Alliance is set to take place on the 14th November 2022 in Brussels with representatives from across the participating organisations, including CAeS. Members of the Alliance will work together to identify and prioritise the challenges posed by zero-emission aircraft and propose practical solutions to overcome these.

CAeS is incredibly proud to be participating in AZEA and at the forefront of achieving zero-emission aviation.
