Heart Aerospace joins European regional airline association


Heart Aerospace has joined the European Regions Airline Association (ERA), a trade association for European regional airlines and associated businesses.

For the Swedish electric aircraft manufacturer, membership of the ERA will be a platform for cooperation and the exchange of ideas for sustainable growth of the regional airline industry in Europe.

Anders Forslund, CEO, Heart Aerospace said: “We believe that electric air travel can be transformational in addressing the industry’s key sustainability challenges, and we look forward to working with the ERA in shaping the future of regional air travel in Europe.”

Founded in 1980, ERA is a non-profit representing over 55 airlines and around 150 companies involved in European air transport. The association also lobbies European regulatory bodies on policy matters.

Montserrat Barriga, director general, ERA: “ERA is committed to supporting a transition to more sustainable aviation; hence, we are very pleased to welcome Heart Aerospace into membership. Heart is a pioneer for sustainable aviation, and with its mission to create not only the world’s greenest, but most affordable and accessible form of transport, I am sure the company will play a significant role in the future of Europe’s regional air sector.”
