A study explores how the Airlander 10, an innovative aircraft, could enhance the transport network in the Highlands and Islands of Scotland, addressing challenges in connectivity and sustainability. Airlander 10 is expected to provide a flexible solution by complementing air and sea transport. It has the potential to serve remote locations, offering passenger and freight services, with applications for both local communities and environmentally conscious transportation. The study addresses understanding the reliability of the Airlander in different weather conditions, the economics of the project, environmental benefits, and the extent to which the Airlander can complement the existing air-fleet and sea vessels. Helium plays a crucial role in the Airlander 10's buoyancy. Once implemented, this would considerably boost helium demand in the region.
