Airlander 10 wants to be a true eco-sustainable alternative to polluting airplanes, the designers of the Hybrid Air Vehicles have defined it as a “practical solution to the challenges of the climate crisis”. Its power supply, currently hybrid electric but by 2030 only electric energy is thought of, will allow a reduction of CO2 emissions by 90% compared to normal aircraft.

The power supply with clean energy does not diminish its performance: an impressive 800 km of range for the Airlander 10.

A practical example

To demonstrate the containment of emissions, the manufacturing company used British government data to provide a practical example of emissions savings.

For a trip from Liverpool to Belfast Ailander 10 would produce 4.75Kg of CO2 per passenger; a ferry would produce almost 5, while an airliner expects CO2 emissions per passenger of as much as 67.75 kg.

The routes

Traveling with this spectacular means of transport will be real experiences.

There are already some routes proposed by the parent company: from Barcelona to Palma de Mallorca in 4 and a half hours, from Liverpool to Belfast in just over 5 hours, from Oslo to Stockholm in about 6 and a half hours, from Seattle to Vancouver in little. more than four hours.

The most spectacular route? The one planned for the North Pole.

A journalist ever since, I love turning the world's events into sentences and lines that can take readers "inside the news", leading them to explore the current happenings with me through my articles. My professional background has allowed me to gain insights into the encounter of two apparently incompatible worlds: luxury and sustainability. Guiding businesses in this direction as a communication manager and event organizer has made me aware that, now more than ever, it is by respecting ourselves and our planet's resources that we should start to create real value.
