ZeroAvia has partnered with AGS Airports to explore hydrogen fuel infrastructure and regulatory requirements for delivering zero-emission flights from Aberdeen and Glasgow.

The team at AGS, which operates Aberdeen, Glasgow and Southampton airports, will work closely with ZeroAvia’s airport infrastructure team to assess the opportunities for hydrogen production onsite as well as exploring potential commercial routes.

Switching some routes to aircraft powered by ZeroAvia’s hydrogen-electric powertrain aims to significantly reduce AGS’ Scope 3 carbon emissions from aircraft and reduce noise and air quality impacts locally. AGS will also explore how hydrogen can be used to remove emissions across ground operations.

ZeroAvia will share its experience in developing and operating its Hydrogen Airport Refuelling Ecosystem (HARE) at Cotswold Airport, Gloucestershire. The partners will work towards a flight demonstration powered by ZeroAvia’s ZA600 600kW hydrogen-electric engine, which is on a path towards certification by 2025. Commercial routes from Glasgow could follow soon after.
