A380 superjumbo to test experimental open fan engine | CNN Travel

This Airbus A380, the world’s largest passenger jet, has been recruited as a demonstrator to trial new cutting-edge open fan engine architecture which could help cut carbon emissions by up to 20%.

Earlier this year, Airbus announced it was to test an experimental hydrogen engine on an A380 — another partnership with CFM International — with the aim of creating a zero-emission airplane by 2035.
