Swedish electric airplane maker Heart Aerospace and Portuguese airline Sevenair have signed a Letter of Intent (LOI) for the purchase of three electric ES-30s with an option for an additional three.
The ES-30 is a regional airplane with a capacity of 30 passengers and a fully electric range of 200 kilometers, all-inclusive of typical airline reserves. This allows the airplane to operate with zero emissions and low noise. The ES-30 also includes a reserve-hybrid configuration, which can extend the range to 400 kilometers.
Sevenair is a regional airline specialized in public transport and wet lease contracts. It currently operates seven routes in Portugal, all of which can be covered by the ES-30’s.
With this latest expression of interest from Sevenair, Heart Aerospace has a total of 230 orders and 100 options for the ES-30, along with LOIs for a further 99 airplanes.
