Air Nostrum collaborates with Hybrid Air Vehicles in technical and operational studies of the Airlander 10.

Hybrid Air Vehicles (HAV) has entered into an agreement with Air Nostrum as a collaborating company for the technical and operational development of the Airlander 10. The airline's Technical Area will provide support to HAV in its Airlander 10 performance and maintenance studies, and Air Nostrum's Commercial and Customer Service departments will make their experience with passengers available to HAV to optimise the design of the aircraft interiors and airport operations.

The collaboration aims to evaluate the use of the Airlander 10 in a configuration for more than 90 passengers. The Airlander cabin offers a unique aerial experience to its users, with a large cabin and floor-to-ceiling windows.

The Airlander operates with a very low noise volume, which is an advantage for both passengers and the environment.

In addition, the fact that the Airlander 10 can operate with minimal infrastructure allows aircraft operations to be carried out without having to resort to traditional airport equipment.

George Land, HAV Commercial Business Development Director, commented:

We are very pleased to be working with Air Nostrum on this evaluation of the Airlander 10. The exercise will be of great value to us as we refine the aircraft specification and understand how it is best used for passenger transport.

On behalf of Air Nostrum, Miguel Ángel Falcón, Managing Director, was satisfied that the Valencia based company has been chosen for this collaboration:

I am pleased to establish this collaboration agreement between HAV and Air Nostrum which represents one more line in the efforts of our company to explore varied mobility formulas which are increasingly environmentally sustainable.
