Boeing joins aireg – the German initiative for SAF
aireg and Boeing are driving the development and use of SAS in the country.
“On behalf of the aireg board and our members, I am extremely pleased that Boeing is becoming a member of our association,” said Siegfried Knecht, chairman of the aireg board. “Boeing has already supported our initiative in the past and we will now jointly drive the development, production, supply and delivery of SAF in cooperation with CAAFI (Commercial Aviation Alternative Fuels Initiative) in the U.S.”
Boeing is committed to delivering all its commercial aircraft 100% SAF compatible by 2030 and is working with airlines, industry partners, governments and research institutions worldwide to increase the availability and reduce the cost of SAF.
“We recognise our responsibility to make aviation more sustainable, and working with stakeholders such as aireg is essential to make progress on meeting industry goals,” said Dr Michael Haidinger, president, Boeing Germany.
“We will support aireg with our global resources and expertise to work together to reduce the environmental impact of aviation.”
Boeing supports commercial aviation’s 2050 net-zero emissions goal by developing new, more efficient commercial aircraft, investing in new technologies and advancing partnerships to scale up sustainable aviation fuels (SAF). Boeing’s newest airplanes like the 737 MAX, 787 Dreamliner and 777-9 are 20-30% more efficient than the in-service airplanes they replace.
