Singapore Airlines agrees SAF deal with Neste



Singapore Airlines Group has agreed a deal to buy 1,000 tonnes (approximately 75,000 gallons) of neat sustainable aviation fuel (SAF) from specialist supplier Neste.

The neat SAF will be blended with convention jet fuel and delivered to Singapore’s Changi Airport’s fuel hydrant system in two batches, in the second and fourth quarter of 2024, making Singapore Airlines and its Scoot subsidiary the first carriers operating out of Changi to receive locally produced SAF from Neste’s Singapore refinery.

Lee Wen Fen, chief sustainability officer at Singapore Airlines, described the Neste deal as “an important milestone” following the group’s recently announced goal of using SAF for 5 per cent of its total fuel requirements by 2030.

“Close collaboration with our partners and stakeholders, both in Singapore and globally, plays a critical role in our long-term decarbonisation goals. A more sustainable aviation industry will ensure that future generations continue to benefit from the global connectivity, economic prosperity, and people links that air travel fosters,” she said.

Starting this month, the carrier said it will offer 1,000 SAF ‘book-and-claim units’ for purchase by its corporate travellers, shippers and freight forwarders. Each unit represents one tonne of neat SAF with its associated carbon dioxide reduction benefit.
