Airlines have been working on solutions for years to reduce their operating costs, and this is especially true for low cost carriers who must keep ticket prices low. EasyJet, one of Europe’s largest inexpensive lines, is committed to testing hybrid machines.
New EasyJet flying aircraft will not rely solely on standard aviation fuel engines as they will be equipped with a special hybrid system using hydrogen fuel cells to power the electronics while the engine is stationary on the airport plate. Interestingly, these links will not produce waste. In this case, the water produced by the hydrogen reaction process is used to be used for drinking and toilet flushing. Plans are also to recover energy while braking the plane on the waist.
