Hybrid Air Freighters (HAF) provides innovative, cost-effective and low environmental and societal impact logistic solutions based on large capacity airship.
The airship is the most cost-effective solution to supply isolated, remote or lacking-infrastructure areas. In comparison to the alternatives - mainly helicopters or conventional aircrafts, or even road or railway construction - the environmental and societal impact is far much lower. Indeed, the airship only need limited power to fly. Thus, the fuel consumption and the noise are reduced.
The airship does not require specific infrastructure and can land or take off on reduced and unprepared surfaces such as sand, ice, grass, or water.
This solution enables to transport rapidly goods, equipment and food where they are actually needed, controlling the cost, at a price far below other air transport solutions with significantly reduced carbon and noise emissions.
This is a very efficient and competitive way 1/ to support the economic development of isolated areas, notably in opening them to a wider market and allowing better regional exchanges 2/
to transport equipment and construction materials 3/ transport food to population suffering from hunger or malnutrition
4/ to supply first aid equipment in case of crisis, natural disasters, or to operate medical evacuation.
Established and based in Europe, HAF is a start-up managed by an experienced team of professionals specialized in the fields of complex logistics and aviation.
HAF vision is allow the remote areas to be supplied at a competitive cost to support their developement, and to allow at the same time a reduction of the impact of airfreight on the environment (reducing CO2 footprint, infrastructure, ground operation).
