As aerial vehicles have undergone major transformations, companies involved in the field are aiming to bring about sustainability in the global aviation industry. It is estimated that global aviation contributes to nearly 2.5% of overall CO2 emissions and this figure is all set to increase rapidly in the future.
With the intention to make aviation more sustainable, Dutch airline KLM has joined hands with TU Delft to create the Flying-V aircraft concept. This aircraft is designed to use 20% less fuel than Airbus A350. As a part of the collaboration, KLM has signed an agreement to offer financial support to TU Delft (Delft University of Technology) in the research and development of the aircraft, which will bring sustainability to aviation.
