Neste Corp. announced May 6 that it has signed an agreement with the Singapore Airlines Group for the purchase of 1,000 tons of neat Neste MY Sustainable Aviation Fuel™.


This will make SIA and Scoot, the two airlines in the group, the first carriers to receive SAF produced at Neste’s refinery in the country at Changi Airport.


Neste will blend the SAF with conventional jet fuel according to the required safety specifications and deliver the blended jet fuel to Changi Airport’s fuel-hydrant system in two batches—once in the second quarter and once in the fourth quarter of this year. 


This milestone will also mark the first direct supply of Neste’s SAF to airlines at Changi Airport, reinforcing the end-to-end SAF supply-chain capabilities in Singapore.


This follows the completion of the expansion of Neste’s Singapore refinery in May 2023.


The refinery has the capacity to produce 1 million tons of SAF each year, making it the world’s largest SAF production facility.


Neste’s SAF, which is made from 100 percent renewable waste and residue raw materials, reduces greenhouse-gas emissions by up to 80 percent over the fuel’s lifecycle.


Blended with conventional jet fuel, it seamlessly integrates with existing aircraft engines and fueling infrastructure.


“This agreement with Neste is an important milestone in the SIA Group’s journey to have a minimum of 5 percent sustainable aviation fuel in our total fuel uplift by 2030,” said Lee Wen Fen, Singapore Airlines’ chief sustainability officer. “Close collaboration with our partners and stakeholders, both in Singapore and globally, plays a critical role in our long-term decarbonization goals. A more sustainable aviation industry will ensure that future generations continue to benefit from the global connectivity, economic prosperity and people links that air travel fosters.”


Alexander Kueper, Neste’s vice president of renewable aviation, added, “We are proud that Singapore Airlines and Scoot are our first customers benefiting from our integrated supply capabilities into Changi Airport. This supply of locally produced SAF to Changi Airport is a milestone in our journey of supporting the aviation industry and governments in the region to achieve their emissions reduction goals. Singapore is a leading aviation hub in the Asia-Pacific region and this delivery of SAF, as well as the recently announced national SAF target, will hopefully encourage the wider adoption of SAF across the broader Asia-Pacific region. We are looking forward to expanding our cooperation with Singapore Airlines as well as supplying visiting carriers at Changi airport.”
