Aviation experts work to make zero emission flight a reality

22 April 2022/Categories: Aviation, Net-Zero


Transport Secretary Grant Shapps and Business Secretary Kwasi Kwarteng have set out a new group of aviation experts across industry and government who will work together to make zero-emission flight a reality.

As world leaders in aviation decarbonisation, the new Zero Emission Flight (ZEF) Delivery Group, will further Britain’s role in the global effort to end flight emissions.

Launched at the fifth meeting of the Jet Zero Council, the new steering group will help position the UK at the forefront of the global shift to green aviation by supporting the development of zero-emission aircraft and airport infrastructure. It will also look at how the law needs to adapt so that sustainable flying can truly become a reality.

The new group will sit under the Jet Zero Council – an advisory forum with experts from across the industry – and will focus specifically on the technology, infrastructure, and regulation needed to make zero-emission flight a reality.

Grant Shapps, Transport Secretary, said:

"From the first jet engine created here in the UK, Britain is truly a world-leader in flying. Now we are determined to revolutionise flying and we want to see everyone have the opportunity to travel guilt-free."
