Aviation International News reports that the Spanish regional airline Air Nostrum prepares to “launch airship services with plans to acquire 10 of the 100-seat Airlander 10 aircraft being developed by Hybrid Air Vehicles in a deal that could be worth $600 million.” In the last six months, “Air Nostrum and HAV have conducted studies and modeling exercises to assess how best to operate the airship on domestic routes.” Air Nostrum President Carlos Bertomeu said, “We are exploring each and every possible way to reduce our carbon footprint.

Sustainability, which is good news for everyone, is already a non-negotiable fact in the daily operations of commercial aviation.”
