The intention is to get the planes into the air to receive proper routes and a license from the Civil Aviation Authority. Once the technology is fully operational and approved around 2025, they will simply swap the engines to hydrogen fuel-powered mechanisms.

In a press release, Ecojet stated, “The decision to repurpose old planes rather than build new models from scratch will save 90,000 tons of carbon per year. The only byproduct will be water, which can be captured and released into the lower atmosphere to avoid the harmful effects of contrails”.
