SK Energy to supply Korean Air with carbon-neutral jet fuel


Korean Air has partnered with SK Energy, a major petroleum and refinery company in Korea, to introduce carbon-neutral jet fuel to actively counter climate change. Through the partnership, the airline will purchase a month’s worth of carbon-neutral jet fuel for domestic flights departing from Jeju and Cheongju.

Carbon-neutral jet fuel can be achieved by measuring the total amount of greenhouse gas emissions produced through fuel production, transport and consumption, and purchasing carbon credits to offset the carbon footprint.

Greenhouse gases generated from aircraft operations account for 2 to 3 percent of total global emissions. In line with the global aviation industry’s efforts for sustainable growth, Korean Air is seeking various methods to reduce carbon emissions to achieve carbon-neutral growth and fight climate change.

Korean Air is actively participating in the International Civil Aviation Organization’s Carbon Offsetting and Reduction Scheme for International Aviation, and is introducing ecofriendly and high-efficient aircraft. The airline’s recently introduced A220-300 is equipped with the latest engine, which reduces carbon emissions per seat by 25 percent compared to existing models of similar capacity.
