GLOBAL AIRRAIL 2016: The Hyperloop One system uses a linear motor to accelerate a passenger or cargo vehicle through a tube in a low pressure environment, which greatly reduces aerodynamic resistance. These fully autonomous ‘pods' levitate slightly above the track, which eliminates friction.

Operating on-demand between multiple terminals in large population centres, Hyperloop One offers faster-than-air journeys on many city centre to city centre routes. Hyperloop One plans close integration with airports, with Hyperloop’s unprecedented speed allowing airports to significantly expand their market catchments and to radically improve the attractiveness and environmental performance of their surface access.

Hyperloop One has formed a partnership with FS Links Ab, to study a potential Hyperloop route linking Helsinki and Stockholm, and their two major airports, routing via the Åland Islands which lie between the two countries in the Baltic Sea. A Project Scoping Study was conducted during the first half of 2016. Preliminary findings were published in July 2016 and are available here >>>

Learn about the project from Alan James, VP Worldwide Business Development – Passenger Systems of Hyperloop-One and Mårten Fröjdö, Partner of FS Links Ab and Chairman at Aland Federation of Business Owners at the Global AirRail 2016 conference, taking place in Helsinki on 9-11 November.
