Grant Shapps – 2021 Comments on Liquid Hydrogen Aircraft

The comments made by Grant Shapps, the Secretary of State for Transport, on 6 December 2021.

As we build back greener, it’s crucial that we place sustainability at the heart of the aviation industry’s recovery from COVID-19.

This pioneering design for a liquid hydrogen powered aircraft, led by a British organisation, brings us one step closer to a future where people can continue to travel and connect but without the carbon footprint.

I will continue to work closely with the Jet Zero Council to support the UK’s world-leading research in this sector, which will create green jobs, help us meet our ambitious net zero targets and lead the global transition to net zero aviation.
