easyJet Hopes ecoJet Will Cut Emissions 50%

The UK’s easyJet has unveiled its vision of a short-haul aircraft, dubbed ecoJet, that it hopes will generate 50 percent less carbon dioxide than its current planes and can be delivered by 2015, Reuters reports (via CNET).

The narrow-body plane would have two open-rotor engines above a wide tail fin, with a lightweight body constructed of carbon composites.

“This is technology that is well within our reach,” said EasyJet Chief Executive Andy Harrison. “We are talking to Boeing and Airbus. We are working with manufacturers to get this aircraft delivered in 2015.”

Last week, a trade group representing the airlines of the world set a goal of developing a “zero-emissions” airplane within 50 years.
