Universal Hydrogen and Icelandair Group intend to convert Icelandair aircraft to hydrogen

Published

on

Universal Hydrogen and the Icelandair Group have signed a letter of intent, which includes a partnership to introduce clean hydrogen as aviation fuel for Icelandair’s domestic aircraft.

Icelandair is Iceland’s leading airline. It serves domestic routes and flies to a number of destinations in Europe and North America. Icelandair is part of the Icelandair Group, which provides air travel and logistics, aircraft rental and advisory services and tourism, specializing in travel from Iceland.

In turn, the American company Universal Hydrogen, in its own words, “makes commercial flights on hydrogen a reality for the near future.” The company is taking a “flexible, scalable and lightweight approach” to the logistics of hydrogen, transporting it in modular pods through its existing cargo network from green production sites to airports around the world. To accelerate the introduction of the new fuel, Universal Hydrogen is also developing a kit to convert existing regional aircraft to use hydrogen by installing a hydrogen-electric unit compatible with the aforementioned modular capsule technology.

For Iceland, the transition to hydrogen looks like a natural step, since the country’s electricity grid operates only on renewable energy sources, making it possible to decarbonize one of the most difficult industries in this regard – aviation.

The signed document is the first step in an ambitious multilateral initiative that will require cooperation with Icelandic hydrogen producers, transport companies and airports.
