New Mexican Carrier Aerus To Operate Regional Routes Left By Aeromar

The title of this post, is the same as that of this article on Simple Flying.

This is the first paragraph.

The new Mexican regional startup carrier Aerus will begin flying next month, according to the company’s Chief Executive Officer, Javier Herrera. With a fleet of Cessna and Alice aircraft, Aerus is looking to replace Aeromar as the country’s leading regional airline flying point-to-point routes from its base in Monterrey International Airport (MTY).

The Rise Of Zero-Carbon Airlines

It looks like Aerus could be heading to join a list of zero- or low-carbon airlines.

Current airlines going in that direction include.

Some parts of aviation do seem to be decarbonising.

Ricardo – The Role Of Hydrogen In The Green Aviation Revolution

The title of this post, is the same as that of this article on Hydrogen Central.

This is the third paragraph.

The introduction of zero-emission aircraft will enable us to re-think our approach to regional connectivity and the way we currently fly. A recent report by Project NAPKIN stated that zero-carbon emission flight is entirely possible from the middle of this decade on sub-regional routes, on aircraft ranging in size from seven to 19 seats.

It makes a bold statement.

The article is a must read.

Swedish Battery-Electric Aircraft Selected By A Major Airline

The title of this post, is the same as that of this article on autoevolution.

This is the sub-heading.

You know that saying, “New year, new me”? In the case of this major airline, it’s more like “New decade, new me.” Air New Zealand wants to flaunt a brand-new regional fleet starting 2030. And it looks like that will include an all-electric model developed by the Sweden-based Heart Aerospace.

The article then gives a description of their plan called Mission Next Gen Aircraft to go zero-carbon on their short haul routes.

This paragraph describes the aircraft that will be used.

ATR will bring its upgraded aircraft concept, called the ATR EVO, designed to be 100% compatible with SAF (sustainable aviation fuel). Embraer will showcase the innovations of an entire new family of aircraft named Energia, based on various types of clean propulsion. Universal Hydrogen will retrofit the existing regional airliners with its efficient hydrogen solution. Last but not least, Heart Aerospace will focus on the niche segment of battery-electric aircraft.

It will be fascinating to see how all this works out.

We’re still waiting in the UK for an airline to announce the purchase of a zero-carbon aircraft.

Especially, as we have some routes, like those around Scottish islands, where there are many short routes, that have less than a dozen passengers on a flight.
