Emirates adds blended SAF on Amsterdam Schiphol Airport flights

by Madaline Dunn

Emirates has announced that it has activated its fuel agreement with Neste at Amsterdam Schiphol Airport, which will see over two million gallons of blended SAF supplied into the fuelling system at Schiphol Airport over the course of 2024.

Emirates shared that its partnership with Neste represents one of the largest volumes of SAF that the airline has purchased to date, and once fully supplied into Amsterdam Schiphol’s fuelling system, the blended SAF will have been comprised of over 700,000 gallons of neat SAF.

The airline is also working with Neste to supply SAF into the fuelling systems at Singapore Changi Airport in the next few months.

Commenting on this development, Adel Al Redha, Deputy President and Chief Operations Officer, Emirates, said: “Collaborating with committed partners like Neste is one of the practical steps we are taking to reduce our emissions, and it’s an all-important milestone in our own sustainability journey as an airline. Strong partnerships like this, especially at major air transport hubs such as Amsterdam, lay the foundation for how we can work with partners and airports to increase access to and availability of SAF across our network.”

Alexander Kueper, Vice President of Renewable Aviation, Neste, added: “We are proud to support Emirates in their sustainability journey. SAF is an available solution for reducing greenhouse gas emissions from air travel and it is exciting that Emirates have started using our Neste MY Sustainable Aviation Fuel at Amsterdam Airport Schiphol. It is also a great example of how we are working together with partners to accelerate SAF usage and are looking forward to the next steps of our cooperation.”

Last year, Emirates, also integrated SAF into Dubai Airport fuelling systems, with the support of partners, allocating the SAF to a number of flights, including a flight to Sydney.

Earlier this year, the airline became the first international carrier to join the Solent Cluster in the UK, an initiative focused on low-carbon investments. It is also a founding participant of the UAE research consortium Air-CRAFT, which is focused on developing, producing, and scaling sustainable aviation fuel (SAF) technologies for the industry.
