Air bp delivers 210 tonnes of sustainable aviation fuel
Swedavia and its partners SOS Alarm, Systembolaget and the 2030 Secretariat procured the fuel through a joint tender, as part of an initiative to promote the large-scale production of SAF and its use.
The SAF delivered to Stockholm Arlanda Airport will result in a reduction in the carbon emissions generated by the business’ corporate air travel.
The SAF supplied by Air bp has been produced by Neste, one of the world’s leading producers of renewable fuels from wastes and residues.
Martin Thomsen, CEO Air bp, said: “Swedavia share in our ambition to create a sustainable aviation industry. Through collaborations such as this, we are once again demonstrating what can be achieved when we all work together towards a lower carbon industry.”
Jonas Abrahamsson, president and CEO, Swedavia, added: “Both Swedavia and the aviation industry have been strongly affected by the COVID pandemic. Despite current challenges our efforts to reduce the climate change impact in the industry must continue and be prioritised. Now is the opportunity to show our commitment to our climate ambitions which remain intact and to the Swedish aviation industry’s overall goal of all Swedish domestic flights being fossil-free in 2030 and all flights in 2045.”
Air bp began collaborating with Swedavia to help reduce emissions from its corporate staff air travel in June 2019 when it supplied SAF to five of its airports in Sweden including Stockholm Arlanda, Åre Östersund, Malmö, Göteborg Landvetter and Umeå airports.
This latest SAF delivery builds on Air bp's SAF supply agreement with Neste, announced in August, with Air bp offering an increased volume of sustainable aviation fuel to customers in Europe in 2020 and 2021, including Stockholm Arlanda Airport and Oslo Airport.
