Finnair and Neste partner to reduce CO2 footprint of flying with SAF
Finnair and Neste have signed a new agreement which will gradually and considerably increase Finnair’s use of SAF in its operations. The new partnership will be a key contributing factor in Finnair’s long-term target of carbon neutrality. It will not only increase Finnair’s use of SAF, but it will also boost the production of SAF in Finland. Growing availability is also important in order to make SAF more widely used and affordable for Finnair’s future flight operations.
"We are excited about increasing the use of sustainable aviation fuel in our operations from our Helsinki hub" says Finnair’s CEO, Topi Manner. "SAF are a key part of our long-term plan for carbon neutrality – by the end of 2025, we expect to spend some 10 million euros annually on SAF. Developing a healthy SAF market requires commitment from forerunners, and we are happy to be leading the way with Neste."
