Asian carriers are firming up future sustainable aviation fuel (SAF) supplies with Philippines budget airline Cebu Pacific and South Korean flag carrier Korean Air both signing memorandums of understanding (MOUs) with oil major Shell in recent days. Cebu has signed up for 25,000 metric tons/yr of blended SAF over a five-year period starting in 2026. The signing took place ahead of Cebu’s first SAF powered flight from Singapore to Manila on Sep. 28. That SAF was supplied by Shell but made by Neste at its Porvoo plant in Finland. Cebu has said it ultimately wants to use SAF made in the Philippines for outgoing flights.
