Air Liquide and Airbus(1) recently signed two major partnerships, one with Groupe ADP(2) and the other with VINCI Airports(3). The goal is to prepare for the arrival of the first hydrogen-powered aircraft by 2035. Air Liquide already has a presence on aircrafts and in airports, most notably through the installation of hydrogen charging stations. Now the Group is going one step further by contributing to the emergence of an innovative, strategic French sector working toward sustainable and decarbonized aviation. These two partnerships, along with the development of high-pressure storage solutions for charging hydrogen fuel cells on aircraft, will contribute to this achievement.
