This map shows all possible electric aviation routes of a maximum distance of 200 kilometres within the Nordic region.
First generation electric aviation will have a limited range due to battery capacity. According to the report Nordic Sustainable Aviation, routes up to 400 kilometers constitute an initial market for electric airplanes in the Nordic region. However, also shorter distance routes under 200 km, where cruise speed is less important and in sparsely populated regions where passenger volumes are very small, will be the focus (Ydersbond et al, 2020).
The first generation of aircrafts that rely solely on electric power have a defined maximum range of 200 km (Heart Areospace, 2022).
For this accessibility study, we only included routes of a maximum distance of 200 kilometers. This selection gave us 1001 possible routes in total.
