For the first time since the middle of the last century, Jekta Switzerland is proposing a commercial displacement seaplane. Jekta Switzerland will debut at Abu Dhabi Air Expo 2022 with the design of the new 19-seat all-electric amphibious aircraft PHA-ZE 100. The aircraft's name defines its main features: Passenger Hydro Aircraft with Zero Emissions.

The use of a new electric seaplane will create a segment of sustainable transport mobility for the population living in megacities and small settlements located on the coast of the seas and oceans, connect islands, and preserve the unique nature of wildlife sanctuaries that have become popular as tourists' attractions.

A representative of "green aviation" - the PHA-ZE 100 aircraft is a passenger hydro aircraft with Zero emission. Practically that means the lowest cost per passenger possible and the possibility to be used with low or no ground amenities at all. PHA-ZE 100 is delivered by engineering team and aircraft producer who already delivered a handful of solar poweredand amphibious airplanes.

Currently, the commuter seaplane segment is only operating floatplanes: the basic models which entered the commercial operators more than fifty years ago. Unlike its predecessors, the PHA-ZE 100 is made of modern composite materials, equipped with modern navigation and piloting systems and an electric propulsion system, and provides commuter passengers with comfortable flight conditions.
