Momentum Ventures envisions sustainable future of aviation with electric airplanes

Momentum Ventures, the parent company behind online travel agencies FlightHub and JustFly.com, joins the global aviation community in celebrating the strides achieved in electric aviation.

The company recognises the profound potential of electric airplanes in reshaping the industry, ushering in a new era of air travel solutions that are both sustainable and environmentally friendly.

The rise of electric aviation, exemplified by pioneering endeavours like Eviation’s Alice, marks a significant turning point in the perception and experience of air travel.

According to the International Council on Clean Transportation (ICCT), electric aircraft can provide a 49 to 88 per cent reduction in CO2 emissions relative to fossil-fuelled aircraft and can be 2.1 to 3.2 times more energy efficient during cruise.

Matt Keezer, CEO of Momentum Ventures, said: “While we aren’t engaged in electric airplane manufacturing, we enthusiastically welcome the positive influence they impart on the aviation sector.

“Electric airplanes harmonise with our core values of promoting sustainability and advancement within the travel industry.

“Collaboration across the industry is vital for maximising the benefits of electric aviation. Momentum Ventures recognises the importance of partnerships to address challenges related to battery technology, infrastructure, and supply chains,” the CEO added.

Electric airplanes have the capability to substantially reduce carbon emissions and operational expenses, presenting a revolutionary answer for short-haul and regional flights.

While Momentum Ventures predominantly operates within the flight and travel sector, its endorsement of sustainable practices also encompasses broader initiatives aimed at fostering beneficial transformations.

As FlightHub and JustFly.com continue to excel within their respective roles, Momentum Ventures remains dedicated to endorsing and supporting initiatives that contribute to a sustainable aviation future.
