easyJet going towards carbon neutrality by 2050

easyJet has outlined its strategy to achieve carbon neutrality by 2050. A crucial component of this progression is the Airbus A320neo family.

easyJet gained consent from its shareholders to place a sizeable order for A320neo series aircraft this summer. The fleet upgrade’s main objectives are lower pollutants and fuel usage. By 2029, 168 orders must be completed by the company.

Additionally, easyJet has invested money in the Continuous Descent Approach (CDA) and Descent Profile Optimisation (DPO) technologies, which, when applied to the fleet as a whole, will permanently save 1% on fuel. The upgrade is anticipated to reduce annual carbon emissions by 88,600 MT when it is finished the following year.

easyJet has kept up its tight cooperation with electric and hydrogen technologies in search of a long-term answer. Most notably, it invested a significant amount of money in a partnership with Rolls-Royce to develop a hydrogen engine and do carbon removal research. In order to enhance the technology of hydrogen combustion engines, the H2ZERO partnership will concentrate on a series of ground engine experiments. The first ground test of the AE2100 engine is about to take place, according to an official announcement from Rolls-Royce.
