REDUCE YOUR TRAVEL COSTS

BA operates first sustainable aviation fuel flight

In partnership with Heathrow and Glasgow airport, NATS, BP and Airbus, British Airways has successfully operated its first flight using sustainable aviation fuel between London and Glasgow.

The A320neo aircraft was filled with 35 per cent of sustainable aviation fuel (SAF) and 65 per cent normal jet fuel, making it the first BA flight powered directly by SAF. The flight which departed on 14th September 2021 has been described as carbon neutral as the remaining carbon emissions were offset.

The UK’s flagship airline reported the flight reduced CO2 emissions by 62 per cent when compared with a previous flight from 11 years ago. Along with the use of SAF, other innovations include continuous climb and descent and electric ground operations vehicles. 

A spokesperson for the airline commented the aim of the flight was to show “how far the aviation industry has progressed in its efforts to decarbonise over the last decade”.

International Airlines Group, British Airway’s parent group, has committed to operating 10 per cent of its flights using sustainable aviation fuel by 2030.
