Sustainable aviation fuel
Progressing the development and commercial deployment of SAF is crucial to decarbonising the aviation industry and a key part of our plans to reach net zero carbon emissions by 2050. We’re the first airline in the world to use SAF produced on a commercial scale in the UK after signing a multi-year agreement with Phillips 66.
Our partnership with Velocys to build a plant in Humberside will convert household and commercial waste into SAF. Our partnership with LanzaJet will provide us with SAF from a plant in the USA, which is expected to be available to power a number of our flights by the end of 2022.
Over the next 20 years, our parent company IAG will invest $400 million in the development of sustainable aviation fuel and in April 2021, became the first European airline group to commit to powering 10 per cent of all flights with sustainable aviation fuel by 2030.
