Air Canada takes off with sustainable aviation fuel from San Francisco

On flights leaving from San Francisco, Air Canada said it will use sustainable aviation fuel (SAF) instead of regular fuel. This means the fuel will be more environmentally friendly.

Air Canada is getting its SAF from Neste, a company that makes renewable fuels. Neste MY Sustainable Aviation Fuel will be used by the airline. Air Canada will be able to save about 39 tonnes of CO2e by taking these four flights instead of using fossil jet fuel.

This is what Air Canada’s Teresa Ehman said: “We reaffirm our strong, ongoing commitment to sustainable aviation and reaching net-zero GHG emissions by 2050.”

One thing Air Canada has been doing for a long time is working on making aviation fuel that is more environmentally friendly. We are proud to keep leading the way in Canada when it comes to aviation climate change.

This is the main way Air Canada and the rest of the aviation industry will cut down on their GHG emissions, as other technologies like electric, hybrid, and hydrogen aircraft are developed at a large scale in a commercially viable way. SAF is the main way to do this.

“Air Canada is working with the government, producers, and other people in the aviation industry to speed up and grow the commercial production of SAF in Canada. Corporations in Canada are welcome to join our Leave Less Travel Program, which helps businesses cut down on their travel and help the environment. SAF will play an important role in decarbonizing the industry, so we want them to join.”
