Hybrid Air Freighters to buy up to 12 Lockheed Martin Hybrid Airships

Hybrid Air Freighters (HAF) signed a Letter of Intent to purchase up to 12 Lockheed Martin Hybrid Airships, at a total value of approximately $500m.
HAF is working with Hybrid Enterprises, the exclusive re-seller of Lockheed Martin’s Hybrid Airships, to finalise the purchase agreement. 
Paris-based HAF was established specifically to act as an owner-operator of the Lockheed Martin Hybrid Airships.
"We are keen to implement such an impressive innovation in the logistics market," said Hubert de Contenson, chief executive officer of HAF.
"The LMH-1 will open a new era for remote cargo delivery that is free from costly ground infrastructure and will provide a sustainable and affordable solution to remote cargo operations around the globe."
Rob Binns, chief executive officer of Hybrid Enterprises, said: "With a 21-ton cargo payload and the ability to land on any surface, the LMH-1 Hybrid Airship is designed to revolutionise remote cargo delivery.
"We are honored to have HAF as the latest customer of our game-changing aircraft."
With a unique shape and air cushion landing system, Hybrid Airships can transport heavy cargo and/or passengers to and from the most remote locations.
They require little or no fixed ground infrastructure and burn significantly less fuel compared to conventional aircraft.
