Australian SAF Receives Millions of Dollars From Airbus and Qantas

Must Read

Airbus and Qantas have committed to investing millions of dollars in producing Sustainable Aviation Fuel (SAF) in Australia. This move is important in achieving the aviation industry’s ambitious emission reduction goals.

Airbus and Qantas are leading the charge in promoting environmental sustainability in the aviation industry by investing in developing Sustainable Aviation Fuel (SAF) production in Australia. The Gladstone region of Queensland has committed $4 million to a consortium of investors led by Airbus and Qantas.

Qantas Group chief sustainability officer Andrew Parker said, “Qantas will be the largest single customer for Australian-made SAF to meet our emissions reduction targets, which is why we’re investing in ideas and technology to build a local SAF industry.”

Airbus and Qantas are investing in producing Sustainable Aviation Fuel (SAF) in Australia and working to ensure that it is widely used. In 2030, Qantas will make 10% of its fuel mix from SAF and zero emissions by 2050, as pledged by its national airline.

Through this initiative, the two companies hope to reduce the aviation sector’s carbon footprint and help foster a greener future for the industry. The use of SAF is projected to reduce global aviation emissions by up to 80%, making it an integral part of any sustainable aviation strategy.

Qantas and Airbus’ Sustainable Aviation Fuel (SAF) partnership will majorly contribute to the success of Project Sunrise, Qantas’ ultra-long-range flights.

Powered by the world’s most advanced commercial aircraft, the Airbus A350-1000, these nonstop flights from Australia’s east coast will be the first to operate across all three major oceans – the Pacific, Atlantic, and Indian.

With this joint effort between Qantas and Airbus, Project Sunrise will become an important step towards a greener future for aviation, with long-haul routes powered by sustainable fuels like SAF.

With this latest investment from Airbus and Qantas showing strong commitment from both companies towards achieving their sustainability goals, it is hoped that other major players within the aviation industry will follow suit in transitioning to using more sustainably sourced fuels to reach ambitious emission reduction targets.
