TULIPS meeting at Larnaca airport

October 2023

Three eventful days lie behind our TULIPS team, which met for an internal General Assembly (GA) meeting at one of our fellow airports, Hermes Airports Ltd in Larnaca (Cyprus). We shared progress and exchanged lessons learned.

Inspiring leadership

We were inspired by Eleni Kaloyirou’s speech. The CEO of Hermes Airports talks about the plans to reach netzero, the many projects they do to reduce emissions and the TULIPS demonstrations that (will) take place at Larnaca. For instance the biochar demonstration and the plans for the testing of a hydrogen GPU.
