Danish flights to be fossil fuel free

In a New Year’s speech, the Prime Minister of Denmark has announced that all domestic flights will use non-fossil fuels by 2030.

Mette Frederiksen said she was setting a target to "make flying green" whilst also accepting that technology was not yet ready to achieve these aims.

Aeroplane manufacturers are working towards a variety of solutions, from Rolls-Royce developing electric flight for short haul to Airbus looking at Hydrogen, but in either case the target of reaching technological maturity in only eight years will be difficult.

Sweden has already announced a similar target for 2030, with the added ambition of making international flights carbon fee by 2045, and France is looking to move internal flights from the skies to its rail network where feasible.
