Air France-KLM Group has sourced 1,6 million tons, or about 2 billion liters, of sustainable aviation fuel (SAF) from Neste and DG Fuels, the airline company announced on Oct. 26. The deal is among the largest-ever SAF announcements in the industry. 

According to the new agreement, Neste will provide Air France-KLM with the fuel over eight years, starting in 2023, and DG Fuels will supply 600,000 tons from 2027 to 2036. 

Earlier in 2022, Air France-KLM announced its carbon emissions reduction strategy to bring down emissions by 30% by 2030 and reach net zero by 2050. The company plans to use 10% SAF on all of its flights by the end of this decade and 63% by mid-century. 

The aviation sector is currently responsible for 2-3% of global emissions, and SAF is considered among the most promising tools to address the industry’s climate impact.
