Hamburg Airport (HAM) has become the first airport to join Airbus’ international ‘Hydrogen Hub at Airports’ network.

The network, which aims to bring airports, airlines, and companies from the energy sector together to establish a reliable hydrogen infrastructure for the aviation sector, was launched by aerospace corporation, Airbus in 2020. Other companies invited to join the network also include airports in France, Japan, New Zealand and Singapore.

Hamburg Airport, alongside the German Aerospace Center (DLR), recently presented a roadmap outlining plans to research an aircraft fuel solution free of CO2 emissions. It anticipates that the findings of this research will serve as a template for other airports looking to convert their energy to a hydrogen-based infrastructure.

Michael Eggenschwiler, CEO of Hamburg Airport, said:

We are thrilled that Hamburg Airport is working together on equal terms with such international hubs as Paris - Charles de Gaulle and Changi Airport in Singapore as we make these decisive preparations for an energy transition in air travel.

I am very proud of that fact, and also of the pioneering work of our staff, who have been pouring their hearts into laying the foundations for this work over many years.

Airbus’ launching of the ‘Hydrogen Hub at Airports’ network in 2020 was also accompanied by the company’s reveal of its ZEROe concept aircraft, which aims to be the world’s first hydrogen-powered commercial aircraft.
