Prime Minister Mette Frederikson says she wants to make flying green in her New Year’s address. She acknowledges that the plans to reach her target are not yet in place.
She adds that achieving green flying would be difficult, but that researchers and companies are working on solutions.
A European manufacturer Airbus announces plans to develop hydrogen-fueled planes by 2035. However, it is unannounced if this target will be met by 2030, while keeping costs sufficiently low.
The Swedish government is also planning to make flying green by 2045, while installing increased airport fees for high-polluting planes.
France is planning on banning domestic flights with distances that could be traveled within two hours and thirty minutes.
