Cargolux flies solar boat to female-led Arctic trek


A solar-powered boat to be deployed on an Arctic expedition, is being flown from Luxembourg to Calgary.
French navigator Anne Quemer will undertake a solo journey in the boat, aiming to make the 3,500 kilometre trip from Tuktoyaktuk in northwestern Canada, through the Northwest Passage, to Pond Inlet on Baffin Island, reported London's Air Cargo News.
"Cargolux is proud of supporting the Solar Arctic project, which, like the Solar Impulse project, is an effort to explore new and innovative paths in the transportation industry," said Cargolux head of corporate communications Moa Sigurdardottir.
The all-cargo carrier has been involved in the Solar Impulse aircraft project on two occasions. It first transported the solar-powered plane from Payerne in Switzerland to the NASA Ames Research Centre at Moffett Airfield for its Across America Tour in 2013. The airline also moved Solar Impulse from Switzerland to Abu Dhabi for its World Tour in 2015.
