United Airlines, which has invested in more sustainable fuel production than any other airline in the world, has become the first US airline to sign an international purchase agreement for sustainable aviation fuel (SAF).
United has signed with Neste to provide the airline with the right to buy up to 52.5 million gallons over the next three years for United flights at Amsterdam’s Schiphol Airport, and potentially other airports as well.
Lauren Riley, United’s Chief Sustainability Officer said: “Reducing carbon emissions from fuel is the fastest way United will reach our 100 percent green goal by 2050. As the airline that has invested more than any other airline in sustainable aviation fuel production, it makes sense to expand our network of partners internationally with a leading company like Neste.
