Airbus expects to have a successor to the A320neo by 2035, and it will be the first hydrogen-powered aircraft.

Airbus expects to have a successor to the A320neo by 2035, and it will be the first hydrogen-powered aircraft.

First comes the hydrogen plane, which is expected to be officially launched around 2027/2028, and will have a range of about 1,600 kilometers. It will initially be developed on a relatively small scale, with space for about a hundred passengers. After that, the plan is to gradually expand based on “success over time,” Furey said.

The other project, aimed at succeeding the A320neo family, involves aircraft powered by sustainable aviation fuel and capable of seating between 140 and 240 passengers, depending on the subtype.

“We are in the testing phase,” Fourie explained. Airbus is now experimenting with things like the plane's wings and propulsion systems. The drive will feature CFM's new “open rotor” (RISE) design.

More aircraft deliveries
Airbus said earlier today that it could deliver more planes this year than last year, despite delivery problems and spare parts shortages. The company expects to have nearly 800 aircraft, compared to 735 aircraft in 2023. This would further widen the gap with struggling American competitor Boeing.

It was recently revealed that Airbus received a record number of orders last year, with a total of 2,094 aircraft.
