Icelandair has agreed a deal for up to 45,000 tonnes of sustainable aviation fuel with supplier IdunnH2.

The supply will start from 2028 onwards.

It would account for around 10% annual reduction of carbon emissions from Icelandair´s international network.

IdunnH2 will produce the carbon-neutral e-fuel at its site near Keflavík International Airport.

E-fuels are produced from green hydrogen and recycled CO2.

Bogi Nils Bogason, CEO said: “It shows that we want to to support pioneers that are working on the development of sustainable aviation fuels in Iceland.”
