All-electric aircraft by 2026

Rolls-Royce and airframe specialist Tecnam are joining forces with Widerøe – the largest regional airline in Scandinavia – to deliver an all-electric passenger aircraft for the commuter market that will be ready for revenue service in 2026. Due to its topography, Norway makes extensive use of aviation for regional connectivity and has an ambition for all domestic flights to be zero emissions by 2040. Rolls-Royce will bring its expertise in propulsion and power systems, while Tecnam will provide aircraft design, manufacturing and certification capabilities.
