Emirates Takes Flight with Sustainable Fuel in Amsterdam

Emirates, a major Dubai-based airline, has begun utilizing sustainable aviation fuel (SAF) for flights departing from Amsterdam Schiphol Airport. This initiative marks a significant step towards reducing the environmental impact of air travel. The agreement with Neste, a renewable fuels company, involves supplying over 2 million gallons of blended SAF to Amsterdam Schiphol's fueling system throughout 2024. This represents one of Emirates' largest SAF purchases to date and aligns with the airline's commitment to sustainability.


SAF is a cleaner alternative to conventional jet fuel, derived from renewable sources like used cooking oil or plant oils.  When blended with traditional jet fuel, SAF offers a significant reduction in greenhouse gas emissions compared to fossil fuels alone. This project extends beyond Amsterdam. Emirates plans to introduce SAF at Singapore Changi Airport in the coming months, further expanding its commitment to sustainable aviation practices. The airline has previously used SAF on flights from several European cities, demonstrating a continuous effort to reduce its environmental footprint.


Emirates' partnership with Neste highlights a collaborative approach within the aviation industry.  Airlines like Emirates working alongside fuel producers like Neste is crucial for increasing SAF availability and accelerating its adoption across flight networks.
