Hamburg Airport joins the international “Hydrogen Hub at Airport” network

Hamburg Airport has become the first German and the 12th member of the international "Hydrogen Hub at Airport" network, to promote the further expansion of hydrogen infrastructure in aviation. The network’s membership already includes members from the airports, airlines and energy sectors in 11 countries including France, the USA, UK, Singapore, Japan, South Korea and New Zealand. The aim of the international network is to research, develop and expand the infrastructure for the use of hydrogen.

"We welcome Hamburg Airport as the latest “Hydrogen Hub at Airport” member. Hamburg Airport’s expertise in Hydrogen will be an invaluable asset in our ZEROe Ecosystem journey to build a future where aviation will be powered by decarbonised hydrogen. The journey to prepare airport infrastructure to support hydrogen and low carbon aviation begins on the ground with these partnerships. The growing involvement of airports worldwide, including Hamburg Airport, in Airbus' “Hydrogen Hub at Airport”  concept will be key to deploying hydrogen-powered aircraft by 2035," said Karine Guรฉnan, Vice President ZEROe Hydrogen Ecosystem.

Power outage closes Hamburg Airport

It has been a dismal and dark day for passengers at Hamburg Airport as officials were forced to evacuate the terminals and planes were diverted to other nearby airports.

The reason for this closure was an electrical short-circuit that had plunged the airport into darkness early on Sunday morning.  It was around 10am when the power outage began and at first it was thought would only be out for a short while, however even by afternoon the power was still out.  This evening, according to local media reports, airport officials still can't say when power would be restored and operations will resume. 

An airport spokesperson said the "Airport currently closed due to a power failure incident at, passengers should contact their airline for further Information. The airport is forced to suspend flight operations for the rest of today as it was not possible to correct the error. We apologize for the inconvenience to all passengers, collectors and relatives concerned"
