French Finance Minister Bruno Le Maire has declared a “state of emergency” to save the aviation industry so that it can be more competitive.
He added: “We must at all costs avoid a dropout in our industry. We want to accelerate the decarbonization of the aeronautical sector and manufacture a carbon neutral aircraft in 2035. ”
The Civil Aviation Research Council will receive funding to develop new technologies that could allow the launch of a low-carbon aircraft.
