Maybe The Late 2030’s …

“Aviation generates 2.8% of global CO2 emissions and,
even before the recent COP26 climate talks, has become a lightning rod for the “flight shame” movement.

It’s anticipated that
10 billion people
will be flying annually by
2050, which by today’s emission standards means that the aviation industry will need to deal with a cumulative total of
21.2 gigatons of carbon over the next three decades.

British Airways’ parent company IAG plans to power
10% of its flights with sustainable aviation fuel (SAF) by
2030, and says it is investing
$400 million over the next 20 years into fuel development.

Over its life cycle,
sustainable aviation fuel reduces up to
80% of greenhouse gas emissions compared to fossil jet fuel use. And that’s why its deployment is key to reaching the 2050 targets.

Europe’s biggest airplane maker,
Airbus, is betting on
hydrogen to change aviation’s trajectory for short- and medium-haul flight.
In a high-profile pivot last year, Airbus switched from a strong focus on the development of small electric planes to a new initiative exploring the potential of hydrogen.
It revealed a trio of hydrogen-powered zero-emission airliner concepts, under the banner ZEROe, which could enter service by 2035.
