European Industry and Regulators Unite to Provide a Roadmap for Zero Emissions Aviation

Key players from the European aviation industry met in Oslo to set the framework for a unique programme that will transform Norwegian air transportation and serve as a learning ground for sustainable aviation on a regional scale. 

Representatives from Airbus, Avinor, Leonardo, Safran, SAS Scandinavian Airlines and Widerøe attended a meeting led by the Norwegian Civil Aviation Authority and the European Union Aviation Safety Agency (EASA) to initiate the work of the Task Force on Zero Emissions Aviation.

Minister of Transport of Norway Knut Arild Hareide, joined for the opening session.

In its kick-off meeting, the Task Force agreed to draw up a report and roadmap of actionable recommendations to support the Norwegian ambition, which will be presented to the Norwegian government in summer 2020. This will include short-term actions that could be implemented by 2025 or so as well as longer-term actions stretching to 2030 or beyond.
