The programme also supports Teesside’s plans to make the airport’s buildings and infrastructure net-zero before 2030.

eesside International Airport (MME) has collaborated with Air France-KLM on the airline’s sustainable aviation fuel (SAF) programme, becoming the first UK airport to do so.

Aimed at supporting the decarbonisation push, this programme will focus on upgrades to aircraft fleets and investments in alternative, non-fossil, fuels.

As part of this initiative, Air France-KLM will work with organisations to expedite the production and adoption of SAF.

According to them, less than 1% of commercial aircraft use SAF presently.

With this effort, the airline aims to transition from traditional fuels and lower its carbon footprint.
