Copenhagen Airport, joins Heart Aerospace’ Industry Advisory Board to provide input on the design, development, and commercialization of the Swedish company’s regional electric airplane, the ES-30. Heart Aerospace’ Industry Advisory Board consists of airlines, governments, leasing companies and airports from all over the world, each representing a key part of the aviation ecosystem necessary to support the electrification of air travel. The Danish government has announced its intention to make all domestic flights free of fossil fuels by 2030.

Jesper Jacobsen, Head of Sustainability Development at Copenhagen Airports, commented: “Eliminating the carbon emissions from aviation will over the next decades be one of Copenhagen Airports focus areas and to succeed we need to engage with our stakeholders to accelerate their journey towards Net Zero. Joining Heart Aerospace’s Industry Advisory Board gives us a unique position to plan for the infrastructure needed for electric aviation and support the Net Zero ambitions of our partners” 

Simon Newitt, President, and Chief Commercial Officer at Heart Aerospace, said: ” Scandinavia is leading the way towards Net Zero with ambitious mandates, like the one from the Danish government. Airports are key in the electrification of air travel and input from this region’s largest hub will be a valuable contribution, not just to Heart Aerospace, but to all members of our advisory board.” 

Heart Aerospace is developing the ES-30, a regional electric airplane with a standard seating capacity of 30 passengers driven by electric motors with battery derived energy. The ES-30 will have a fully electric zero emissions range of 200 kilometers, an extended range of 400 kilometers with 30 passengers and flexibility to fly up to 800 kilometers with 25 passengers, all including typical airline reserves. Heart Aerospace has a total of 250 firm orders for the ES-30, with options and purchase rights for an additional 120 planes. The company also has letters of intent for a further 91 airplanes.
