SAS today flew from Arlanda to Östersund (SK2064) with a 10% blend in of a certified JET A1 based on re-used cooking oil. The fuel was distributed and delivered by Statoil Aviation and SkyNRG. The flight was also supported by Swedavia.
The synthetic JET A1 as well as the blended Jet-A1 is certified according to ASTM D7566 and D1655. This flight was not only the first of its kind for SAS but also the first flight from Arlanda Airport.
SAS has worked for over ten years to accelerate the commercialization of renewable fuels. Renewable fuels are crucial on the journey towards a more sustainable aviation. This type of flight proof that solutions exist and focus on creating conditions for this to become a reality on a large scale is essential.
During next week a flight is planned from Trondheim to Oslo in Norway on a 48 % blend in of certified synthetic JET A1.
