Neste Supplying SAF to Emirates for Flights from Amsterdam Airport Schiphol

March 28, 2024

Neste has started supplying sustainable aviation fuel (SAF) to Emirates at Amsterdam Airport Schiphol, expanding the partnership the two companies announced in October last year. Over 6,000 tons (2 million gallons) of blended SAF will be supplied into the fueling system at Amsterdam Airport Schiphol over the course of 2024.

Emirates’ partnership with Neste represents one of the largest volumes of SAF that the airline has purchased to date. Once fully supplied into Schiphol Airport’s fueling system, over 2,000 tons (700,000 gallons) of neat SAF will have been supplied as part of the blended SAF supply. Neste is working with the airline to supply SAF also to Singapore Changi Airport in the next few months.

“Collaborating with committed partners like Neste is one of the practical steps we are taking to reduce our emissions, and it’s an all-important milestone in our own sustainability journey as an airline. Strong partnerships like this, especially at major air transport hubs such as Amsterdam, lay the foundation for how we can work with partners and airports to increase access to and availability of SAF across our network,” said Adel Al Redha, deputy president and chief operating officer at Emirates.

“We are proud to support Emirates on their sustainability journey. SAF is an available solution for reducing greenhouse gas emissions from air travel, and it is exciting that Emirates have started using our Neste MY Sustainable Aviation Fuel at Amsterdam Airport Schiphol. It is a great example of how we are working together with partners to accelerate SAF usage. We are looking forward to the next steps of our cooperation,” said Alexander Kueper, vice president renewable aviation at Neste.
