Aer Lingus signs deal for US sustainable aviation fuel supply

Thursday, Jul 14, 2022 0

Aer Lingus has signed a sustainable aviation fuel supply agreement with US-based producer Gevo, Inc.

The agreement will see the purchase of 19,000 tonnes of sustainable aviation fuel per year for five years and is a significant step forward for the airline’s commitment to a lower-carbon future.

As part of IAG, Aer Lingus has pledged to achieve net zero carbon emissions by 2050 and has committed to powering 10% of its flights using sustainable aviation fuel (SAF) by 2030.

Aer Lingus plans to commence fuelling its aircraft with SAF from Gevo from 2026.

The supply agreement will see Aer Lingus purchase enough SAF to reduce lifecycle CO2 emissions by at least 180,000 tonnes.

Lynne Embleton, Aer Lingus Chief Executive Officer, said: “This agreement with Gevo marks a critical step on our journey to net zero carbon emissions.”

“The sustainable aviation fuel produced by Gevo will be used to power our flights from Los Angeles and San Francisco, and from 2026, 50% of fuel purchased by Aer Lingus from California will be sustainable aviation fuel.”

Just last month Aer Lingus signed a lease agreement for two new fuel-efficient Airbus A320neo aircraft.

Dr. Patrick R. Gruber, Gevo’s Chief Executive Officer, said: “Because our fuel is fungible and drop-in ready, it’s expected to have an immediate impact to help our partner airlines achieve their sustainability targets.”
