OMV to supply Air France-KLM with SAF
This offtake agreement follows an existing MoU, granting Air France-KLM access to purchase more than 300,000 metric tons of SAF from OMV by 2030.
OMV is implementing numerous measures to achieve its ambitious strategic sustainability goals and SAF is an essential contributor to this transformation.
EU airports and fuels suppliers must ensure that, starting from 2025, at least 2% of aviation fuels will be “green”, with this share increasing every five years. In addition, there will be an EU label for the environmental performance of flights as of 2025.
Martijn van Koten, OMV executive vice-president fuels & feedstock, said: “This offtake agreement is a great opportunity to accelerate the sustainability efforts of both companies.
“Sustainable aviation fuel significantly reduces CO2 emissions, and we are delighted to make progress together with strong partners like Air France-KLM and to provide solutions for the sustainable development of the aviation industry.”
Fatima Da Gloria De Sousa, vice-president sustainability, Air France-KLM stated: “Air France-KLM is glad to partner with OMV to increase our SAF uptake and contribute to the emerging SAF industry.
“We aim to be at the forefront of sustainable aviation, and this translates into ambitious, tangible targets.
"By 2030, we aim to incorporate at least 10% of SAF in all our flights, which goes beyond the mandates set by the European Union. We have already secured 3 out of those 10%, and we are actively building a worldwide network of SAF providers.”
