Boeing to showcase new jets and advancements in sustainable, autonomous aviation at Farnborough Airshow

The 737-10, making its international debut, will join the 777-9 in daily flight and static display. The planes, each the most fuel-efficient in their class, will fly to the show with a blend of sustainable aviation fuel, which Boeing sees as a major lever for further reducing carbon emissions. The company will also unveil a modeling tool that will provide actionable insights into strategies the aviation industry can use to achieve net zero emissions by 2050.

Another decarbonization strategy is electric propulsion and Boeing’s joint venture Wisk Aero will make the European debut of its all-electric vertical take-off (eVTOL) air taxi. The “Cora” development vehicle is unmanned, helping to advance autonomous capabilities in aviation. Boeing will highlight other autonomous capabilities at the show, including its MQ-25 unmanned aerial tanker and Airpower Team System (ATS).

“In the four years since the last Farnborough Airshow, the world has witnessed the critical social and economic role played by aerospace and defence. We are delighted to reconnect with our colleagues at Farnborough as we let’s together address the need for a more sustainable future and take concrete action to enable innovation and clean technology,” said Sir Michael Arthur, Chairman of Boeing International. “We look forward to sharing the progress we are making.”
