Spanish regional airline Air Nostrum has committed to buying 10 electric propulsion retrofit kits from Dovetail Electric Aviation. The companies announced the agreement at the Dubai Airshow, but they have yet to specify which aircraft will be converted to either battery- or hydrogen-electric power according to multiple media reports.
In December 2022, Air Nostrum and Spanish carrier Volotea acquired a minority stake in Dovetail’s parent company, Dante Aeronautical. Dante specialises in electric propulsion conversions of turboprop aircraft such as the Cessna Caravan.
