What is SAF?
Sustainable aviation fuel (SAF) is an alternative to fossil-based conventional jet fuel but offers 80-95% lower life-cycle carbon emission savings. SAF is made from renewable or sustainable sources such as used cooking oil, agricultural residues or household waste. Currently, up to 50% of SAF can be blended with conventional jet fuel and SAF is designed to meet the same strict quality standards as conventional jet fuel so that it can be simply dropped into existing aircraft and fuel infrastructure.
Why fly using SAF?
SAF is not presently produced in large volumes and many technologies are still under development, so the production costs are much higher than for conventional jet fuel. By selecting to purchase SAF, you are:
- Accelerating the development of this new sustainable avenue for aviation
- Incentivising future uptake of SAF within the UK and globally
- Reducing the overall carbon footprint of your travel
- Enabling the global ambition to decarbonise the aviation sector
