AGS Airports taps ZeroAvia to deliver hydrogen-powered flights

British/American hydrogen-electric aircraft developer ZeroAvia has closed a deal with UK-based AGS Airports for the development of hydrogen fuel infrastructure and launch of zero-emission routes.

For ZeroAvia, the agreement is an important step to getting the production and storage facilities in place to facilitate actual hydrogen-based flight. According to AirportTechnology, the partnership with the airport organization will also look into regulatory framework requirements and resourcing needed to deliver zero-emission flights.

For AGS Airports, that manages Scottish airports such as Glasgow, offering flights and connections with aircraft powered by ZeroAvia’s hydrogen-electric powertrain is expected to significantly cut down Scope 3 carbon emissions, as well as lower noise and air quality impacts locally.

Both parties will work together to conduct a flight demonstration powered by ZeroAvia’s ZA600 600kW hydrogen-electric engine, which is on a path towards certification by 2025.
