Hungary-based budget airline Wizz Air has signed a memorandum of understanding with Austrian jet fuel supplier OMV for up to 185,000 metric tons of sustainable aviation fuel between next year and 2030. Europe’s fastest-growing airline aims to cut its CO2 emissions by 25% by 2050 en route to net zero by 2050 “with the use of SAF playing a significant role in that commitment,” said Wizz Air’s Development Officer Owain Jones in a Nov. 15 statement. “Supporting the production and research of SAF technologies is one of our priorities,” he added. The airline already claims to be Europe's greenest thanks to its new, fuel-efficient fleet.
