Norway to have an all-electric airplane fleet by 2040

Norway is going to be electrifying all of their short-haul airplane flights by 2040. The move is part of the nation's effort to become the world's first country fully powered by renewable energy. Electric flight means all domestic travel and other Scandinavian capital destinations could be reached without fuel. Electrifying short-haul flights would solve the significant pollution problem they create. Transition begins in a few years with hybrid aircrafts that will run biofuels while in the air, but use electric motors to take off. Afterwards, they’ll be implementing fully electric planes that will not be using any fuel.
