Urban areas across the world have grown by more than 100% since 1992. It is predicted that by 2050 more than two-thirds of the total world population will be living in cities. Transportation in cities is already stretched and transportation between key regional areas are served by carbon intensive or time intensive options. Sustainable transport inside and between urban areas has never been more important.
The low carbon way to travel from city centre to city centre
A fundamental shift in the way we travel is needed if we are to meet net zero emissions goals by 2050. New innovations like Airlander offer an alternative to traditional transport options. It looks a little different to what we are used to but offers a myriad of benefits. From 2025 Airlander could be transporting up to 90 passengers on short-haul journeys, connecting regions and emitting 90% less CO2. By 2030 Airlander will have an all-electric option, providing zero-emissions travel well before the global target of 2050.
To showcase the benefits Airlander will provide in regional mobility, we have created example routes in the UK and Europe. Of course, Airlander could operate in any country in the world, as it can take off and land on virtually any flat surface, including water. These routes simply provide an example – if you would like to discuss adding Airlander to your own services, we are happy to explore other routes.
Liverpool to Belfast
Liverpool to Belfast is a well-travelled route, connecting two key cities. The two existing options for this journey are aeroplane or ferry, resulting in either a long journey or a journey that emits large quantities of CO2.
