Εlectric airplanes wants easyJet to reduce emissions

Collaborating with the start-up Wright Electric, easyJet aims to drastically reduce carbon dioxide emissions and fleet noise and its activities, using electric airplanes, initially for short-haul flights. 

In the official press release issued by the company, it was known that Wright Electric already has a two-seat electric plane at its disposal and is currently working on the development of a nine-seat electric plane that is expected to fly for the first time next year.

Wright Electric has also recently filed a patent application for an electric aircraft engine. According to Johan Lundgren, Chief Executive Officer, technological advances are “rapid” and have set as their first target a range of 500 kilometers for their electric plane, which means that a flight from Amsterdam to London could be the first “electric flight”.
