Emirates Uses SAF on Singapore Flights

by Madaline Dunn

Emirates has announced that it has begun using sustainable aviation fuel (SAF) as part of its fuel agreement with Neste on flights departing from Singapore Changi Airport,

The company shared that approximately 3.3 million litres of blended SAF have been integrated into the fuelling system of Changi Airport over the course of the last few weeks.

This marks its inaugural SAF investment in Asia.

Commenting on the move, Adel Al Redha, Deputy President and Chief Operations Officer, Emirates said: “Emirates’ investment into Neste-produced SAF in Singapore marks a first step forward in our SAF adoption in Asia, a region that is primed to become a leading supplier of SAF, which continues to be in short supply.

Al Redha noted that while the agreement marks a milestone in its sustainable aviation fuel journey in a new region, there’s “still a lot of work to do.”

“As we procure SAF for the short term, we’ve got our sights set on longer-term agreements to help scale up a steady supply of SAF for our operations.”

Alexander Kueper, Vice President, Renewable Aviation Business, Neste, commented: “We are excited Emirates has started using our Neste MY Sustainable Aviation Fuel at Changi Airport as the next step in our cooperation. It makes Emirates the first international visiting carrier using SAF at the airport produced at our Singapore refinery and supplied into the airport via our integrated supply chain. We are looking forward to continuing working together on scaling up the supply of SAF for Emirates’ operations.”

The airline is a member of the Solent Cluster in the UK, an initiative focused on low-carbon investments, and a founding participant of the UAE research consortium Air-CRAFT, focused on developing, producing, and scaling SAF technologies for the industry.
