Neste enables Cargolux to become first to use SAF at Luxembourg Airport
Neste MY Sustainable Aviation Fuel™ was supplied to the airport’s fuel storage using NATO’s Central European Pipeline System (CEPS) in cooperation with World Fuel Services and supported by the airport.
Cargolux used Neste’s SAF to operate a celebratory cargo flight from Luxembourg to Zhengzhou, the airline’s biggest hub in mainland China, marking the upcoming 10-year anniversary since Cargolux first started operating services to Zhengzhou in 2014.
“This initiative marks a first for all involved, and I am proud of the smooth process we witnessed throughout from delivery to uplift. This is a milestone in Cargolux’s sustainable engagement and a significant step in our ambitious carbon reduction roadmap. We look forward to continuing this journey in collaboration with lux-Airport, World Fuel Services and Neste, with whom we share a common vision for a sustainable industry,” said Richard Forson, Cargolux president and CEO.
“We are excited to supply our Neste MY Sustainable Aviation Fuel for this celebratory Cargolux cargo flight from Luxembourg Airport in cooperation with World Fuel Services. It is a great example of collaboration with partners across aviation’s value chain to make SAF available. It builds on earlier deliveries of Neste’s SAF to Cargolux at Amsterdam Airport and previous deliveries of SAF to airports via the CEPS pipeline system.
“It also highlights the importance of joint efforts in making more sustainable fuel options available at airports,” added Alexander Kueper, vice-president EMEA from the renewable aviation business unit at Neste.
