Scandinavian Airlines To Open Reservations For Electric Flights Departing In 2028

Scandinavian Airlines is soon opening reservations for its first electric flights with Heart Aerospace, departing sometime in 2028.

The flights will take off from Sweden, Norway, and Denmark with 30 seats available on Heart Aeropace’s ES-30 aircraft. The aircraft operates at zero emissions at airports, on routes up to 200 km, and on routes beyond 200 km as the battery evolves throughout the years leading up to their flights.

The flight cost is a tribute to the year Scandinavian Airlines was founded at 1,946 Swedish kronor (around $187). Those who manage to snag seats on these groundbreaking flights also won’t have to pay until 30 days before the flight date.

Scandinavian Airlines is a pioneer in aviation, becoming the first commercial airline to fly over the North Pole in 1957, shortening the flight time from Copenhagen to Tokyo.

These commercial flights are not the first to be powered entirely by electricity, though, as Eviation Aircraft flew two pilots and nine passengers for eight minutes on its maiden flight in 2022.

Eviation’s planes are zero-emission, run by all-electric technology, quieter than a combustion engine, and require less maintenance than a traditional engine.

Eviation may become one of the first fully-electric carriers as it plans to begin selling planes to buyers in 2026 for regular takeoffs by 2027.

The dates and the routes for the Scandinavian Airlines electric flights have not been announced yet, but registration to book will open at 6AM EDT on Friday, June 9.
