On 13 June, Cargolux together with industry partners inaugurated the delivery of sustainable aviation fuel at its home base in Luxembourg’s Findel airport (LUX).
The SAF was delivered to LUX’s fuel farm via NATO’s Central European Pipeline System (CEPS).
The airline will use the SAF to operate a carbon neutral flight with its 747-8F from LUX to Zhengzhou (CGO), on time for a ceremony marking its 10th year of operations in the Chinese city.
The SAF is from sustainably sourced, 100 percent renewable waste and residue raw materials, in compliance with the EU Renewable Energy Directive (RED II) Directive.
“This initiative marks a first for all involved and I am proud of the smooth process we witnessed throughout from delivery to uplift. This is a milestone in Cargolux’s sustainable engagement and a significant step in our carbon reduction roadmap. We look forward to continuing this journey in collaboration with lux-Airport, World Fuel Services and Neste, with whom we share a common vision for a sustainable industry,” stated Richard Forson, Cargolux President & CEO.
