Plans made by Norway’s public operator of air transport include making all short-haul flights (lasting up to 1.5 hours) in Norway entirely electric by 2040. Avinor, the state-owned company which operates most of Norway’s civil airports, aims to be the “first in the world” to make the switch to electric air transport and announced in a 2017 report that they had established a development project for electric aircraft in cooperation with the Norwegian Sports Aviation Association and major airlines. Avinor intends to reduce greenhouse gas emissions by phasing in biofuels in the next few years, before phasing in electric planes.
