ANA launches new SAF flight initiative
Designed to promote Sustainable Aviation Fuel (SAF) by collaborating with leading companies in this area, the programme is the latest effort by ANA to decrease its carbon footprint.
The SAF Flight Initiative aims to work with leading partners across a range of industries, supporting their efforts to reduce emissions in the value chains as well as to expand the production and use of SAF.
Nippon Express Co, Kintetsu World Express and Yusen Logistics Co have announced that they will participate in the SAF Flight Initiative.
ANA conducted a SAF-powered cargo flight with these three major logistics and cargo companies on September 29, the first flight by a Japanese airline to conduct a joint operation using SAF.
“ANA has long been a leader in advancing sustainability in the airline industry, and this fuel initiative further demonstrates our ability to meet the demands of society. As SAF will play a major role in reducing carbon emissions, we will continue looking for ways to accelerate its adoption," said Yuji Hirako, president & CEO of ANA.
"At ANA, we recognise that preserving our environment requires that we build broad coalitions committed to achieving a common goal, and we will continue to work with partners to help them reduce their carbon footprint in line with our own ambitious targets."
