Scandinavian Airlines makes it easier to choose biofuel

Scandinavian Airlines (SAS) launched two ticket types that include biofuel April 3.






These will be available on all SAS domestic, Scandinavian and European flights.





SAS aims to use fossil-free aviation fuel equivalent of all its domestic flights by 2030, a journey the airline said it is making together with its passengers.






“We are, therefore, making it even easier for our travelers to be part of the journey toward more sustainable air travel by launching tickets that include the maximum allowed amount of biofuel,” SAS stated.






Travelers buying Go Smart or Plus Pro tickets will be able to purchase these tickets with approximately 50 percent biofuel included to lower the CO2 emissions of their SAS flight.






“Our journey toward more sustainable aviation continues, and by increasing the use of biofuel, we are bridging the gap to zero-emission flights,” said Ann-Sofie Hörlin, head of sustainability at SAS. “We know it is important for our customers, both leisure and corporate, to actively take part in these efforts and SAS Bio will fill this demand.”






Go Smart Bio and Plus Pro Bio includes the cost of approximately 50 percent biofuel, which is calculated on an average journey, corresponding to approximately 60 minutes on Swedish or Norwegian domestic, 60 minutes within Scandinavia, 35 minutes on Danish domestic or 90 minutes on European flights.






The amount of biofuel purchased will be used to replace the equivalent amount of fossil fuel in SAS’s operations.






SAS said it guarantees that the purchase of biofuel will take place within 12 months.

SAS added that it makes no profit from the purchase.






Sustainable aviation fuel (SAF) emits approximately 80 percent less climate-impacting CO2 compared to fossil fuels during its lifecycle.






At present, according to regulations for commercial aviation, biofuel must be blended with conventional jet fuel with a maximum of 50 percent SAF.






Since 2019, SAS offers biofuel as a travel extra, available on all Scandinavian Airlines flights.
