Speaking about the MoU, Joyce Gardner, Director Finance & Strategy at RTHA, said:
“We are excited by the potential of this partnership. At Rotterdam-The Hague Airport, our reputation is built on an excellent passenger experience – and that’s why we invest in piloting innovations that can make air travel safer, smoother, and increasingly sustainable too.”
Esther Kromhout, Director at NACO, added:
“The aviation sector today is grappling with big questions like passenger experience and sustainability. We’re keen to bring fresh ideas to the table, building on our reputation as global leaders in airport planning. This is the start of an exciting journey with RTHA – where new concepts and use cases can be tested in an agile, efficient way – before being scaled-up and rolled out to the benefit of airports around the world.”
Key developments include the rapid scalability of sustainable aviation solutions, exploring the implementation of electric flying and hydrogen-powered aircraft along with other game-changing solutions such as large-scale use of PV panels to accelerate the decarbonization of airports.
