As part of our commitment to increase the supply of sustainable aviation fuel (SAF) across our global network, we’re delighted to have delivered 210 tonnes of SAF to Stockholm Arlanda Airport (ARN/ ESSA) in Sweden


Stockholm Arlanda is owned and operated by Swedavia which, along with its partners, procured the SAF as part of an initiative to reduce carbon emissions from air travel. The SAF delivered will result in a reduction in the carbon emissions generated by the business’ corporate air travel.


This latest SAF delivery follows the supply of SAF to five airports in the Swedavia portfolio in June 2019. As well as Stockholm Arlanda these included Åre Östersund, Malmö, Göteborg Landvetter and Umeå airports. The delivery also builds on our supply agreement with Neste, one of the world’s leading producers of renewable fuels from wastes and residues.


With both Air bp and Swedavia committed to creating a sustainable aviation industry, Martin Thomsen, CEO Air bp commented that, “Through collaborations such as this, we are once again demonstrating what can be achieved when we all work together towards a lower carbon industry.”


Meanwhile Jonas Abrahamsson, president and CEO, Swedavia, said: 
“Both Swedavia and the aviation industry have been strongly affected by the COVID pandemic. Despite current challenges our efforts to reduce the climate change impact in the industry must continue and be prioritized. Now is the opportunity to show our commitment to our climate ambitions which remain intact and to the Swedish aviation industry’s overall goal of all Swedish domestic flights being fossil-free in 2030 and all flights in 2045.”
