Europe’s Leading Airline Plans To Build An Electrical Airplane Within 10 Years

EasyJet passenger plane arrives at Schoenefeld Airport in Germany.

EasyJet, Europe’s leading airline, plans to build an all-electric commercial passenger airplane within 10 years. The airline collaborates with a U.S. company Wright Electric to achieve this ambitious goal.

It is designed to run without the jet fuels and could save about 15 percent fuel burn and carbon emissions. It will also reduce noise by about 50 percent from take-off and landing. This airplane will take the passengers across easyJet’s UK and the European network within the next decade.

So, could this electric airplane technology capable and efficient? Electric propulsion technology could significantly decrease the aircraft noise. On the other hand, it could not travel at higher speeds and at a bigger distance.
