Trade body Airlines UK urged ministers to consider introducing a pricing mechanism for sustainable aviation fuel.

Tim Alderslade, chief executive of trade body Airlines UK, said manufacturing sites for sustainable aviation fuel (SAF) will not get built unless producers believe they will achieve a return on their investment.
