- Hydrogen-powered Chevrolet Equinox car to be used for limo service - Fuel Cell Technology On The Ground in Los Angeles and planned for New

York - Governments should be building hydrogen filling stations in key cities to

encourage faster take-up

SOUTH NORWALK, Conn., March 3 /PRNewswire/ -- Virgin Atlantic, one of the world's leading long-haul airlines, and General Motors, the world's largest automaker, today announced that the airline will offer passengers a zero-emissions Chevrolet Equinox Hydrogen Fuel Cell car as part of its Upper Class limo service. Initially passengers in Los Angeles will take part in the trial which will not only enable them to experience the next generation of cars but also reduce their carbon footprint. The hydrogen fuel cell limo service is expected to be extended to New York City later this year.

Sir Richard Branson, President of Virgin Atlantic, commented:

"Our mission to be the sustainable airline is clear, both on the ground

and in the air. Partnerships such as this with General Motors show

that we are pioneering in the aviation industry when it comes to

reducing emissions at every stage of our passengers' journey."

"We are calling upon governments worldwide, not just the UK and US, to

assist businesses by building hydrogen filling stations in key cities

so that drivers can fill up their cars more easily. As a first step,

existing filling stations could add renewable energy pumps alongside

other fuel pumps. This new technology will only become commonplace if

businesses and drivers are incentivized to adopt it quickly, and that's

where governments need to play a major role."
