Ural Airlines tested biofuel in action
20.01.2022 — News
Ural Airlines has opened a new page in its history when its Airbus A321 performed the first flight using sustainable aviation fuel. The cargo airliner delivered medical supplies and COVID-19 test kits from Amsterdam to Ekaterinburg. Sustainable aviation fuel (SAF) blended in a ratio of more than 35% with conventional fuel made it possible to reduce CO2 emissions by one third during the flight.
As RusBusinessNews has been informed by Ural Airlines’ Press Service, the airline is planning to use biofuel in future in its commercial flights to European airports.
"We attach great importance to the ESG strategy and to the reduction in CO2 emissions. Every year, Ural Airlines makes a considerable contribution to the reduction of the carbon footprint by acquiring Airbus-manufactured modern aircraft with reduced emissions and the option to be powered with SAF. The using of more environmentally friendly aviation fuel is another step towards the goal achievement," Sergei Skuratov, General Director of Ural Airlines, pointed out.
For further development, certification and commercial production of sustainable fuel for jet engines in Russia, Gazprom Neft initiated the establishment of the Eurasian SAF Alliance bringing together different industry participants, including Ural Airlines.
