Airbus, Scandinavian Airlines, Swedavia, Vattenfall and Avinor recently signed a Memorandum of Understanding to develop a framework to roll out hydrogen-powered flights in Norway and Sweden. Hydrogen is expected to become a significant fuel source for aviation in the future and this cooperation provides an understanding of hydrogen aircraft concepts and operations, regulatory needs, infrastructure, supply, fuel storage, and refueling at airports.
The partnership combines the expertise of all five companies, helping to enable a joint effort toward more sustainable aviation. SAS’ contribution to the project involves the understanding of the Scandinavian market, as well as specialized knowledge in aircraft operations and handling. SAS hopes to be the driving force in the advancement and implementation of sustainable practices.
This is the first time a study of this kind covers two countries and more than 50 airports. All partners share the ambition to use their respective expertise to help the process of making aviation more sustainable and to achieve the goal of net zero carbon emissions by 2050.
“As the world takes positive steps towards a more sustainable future, SAS’ commitment is to ensure that today’s traveler as well as coming generations can enjoy the benefits of seamless global connectivity. By partnering with some of the strongest and most innovative players in the industry, we are assuming our responsibility to drive the transition towards achieving net-zero emissions. A journey that matters not just for SAS, but for the entire aviation industry,” said Anko van der Werff, president & CEO, SAS.

You know what you’re going to get at an Aman hotel, and also you don’t. Expect peerless service, obsessive attention to detail, architectural elegance worthy of a fashion magazine, a holistic approach to wellness and astounding levels of comfort. But each property is also intimately connected to its setting, and that’s where the surprises lie. For instance, finding yourself on your knees on a sidewalk in Luang Prabang handing out sticky rice to Buddhist monks at 5:30 a.m. isn’t something we expected.
