The Spanish airline Iberia has conducted a flight using sustainable aviation fuel (SAF) produced last August at Repsol’s Petronor Industrial Complex near Bilbao, Spain.

The scheduled flight IB 426 was operated with an Airbus A320neo aircraft of the Spanish airline, with a capacity of 180 passengers.

On the Madrid-Bilbao route, the flight reduced CO2 emissions by 1.4 tons, according to Repsol, thanks to the improved fuel efficiency provided by the aircraft and the use of waste-based SAF.

The batch of SAF is the third manufactured by Repsol and the first on the Spanish market produced from waste as raw material. Two previous batches were produced at Repsol's industrial complexes in Puertollano and Tarragona.

In July, Repsol and Iberia signed an agreement to collaborate on more sustainable transport. This flight is the first initiative arising from the agreement.
