International Airport Review
Virgin Atlantic has announced the purchase of 70 million gallons of Sustainable Aviation Fuel, to help reduce carbon emissions in the next decade and achieve Net Zero 2050.
Virgin Atlantic has announced the purchase of 10 million USG per annum of SAF to be produced by Gevo, Inc. and supplied by Virgin Atlantic’s joint venture partner, Delta Air Lines. The agreement with Delta builds on the existing long-term partnership between Delta and Gevo and increases the use of SAF from the U.S. West Coast. SAF produced by Gevo will come from one of its future production facilities.
After fleet transformation, SAF at scale represents the greatest opportunity to reduce carbon emissions in the next decade to help to achieve Net Zero 2050. This new SAF agreement with Delta represents 20 per cent of Virgin Atlantic’s 2030 SAF target and is equivalent to fuelling more than 500 flights across the transatlantic from Los Angeles.
