Finnair fuels the future with sustainable fuel order

Tuesday, 21 Mar, 2023 0

Finnair is ramping up use of sustainable aviation fuel.

The Nordic airline has bought 750 tonnes of sustainable aviation fuel (SAF) from partner, Neste.

It is for use on flights departing from Helsinki Airport.

It represents Finnair’s largest single batch of SAF purchased yet.

The 750 tons represents about 400 flights between Helsinki and Stockholm using unblended 100% SAF.

By using Neste MY sustainable aviation fuel emissions will be reduced by up to 80%, it says.

A small part of the price of each Finnair ticket is allocated towards the cost of SAF.

The airline aims to achieve carbon neutrality by 2045.

Eveliina Huure, SVP Sustainability, said: “Finnair celebrates its 100th anniversary this year and reducing emissions from flying is essential to a sustainable future.”

“Sustainable aviation fuel will be one of the most important tools for reducing aviation-related emissions.
