Qatar Airways has revealed it will use 5% sustainable aviation fuel (SAF) in all its flights from Amsterdam’s Schiphol Airport during the 2023/24 fiscal year. In a May 31 statement, the flag carrier said it had just signed a multimillion dollar deal for 3,000 metric tons (1 million gallons) of neat SAF with Shell Aviation, its existing jet fuel supplier at Schiphol. “Qatar Airways and Shell have a history of collaboration, so it is fantastic to now work together on decarbonization as we supply them with SAF for the first time,” said Shell Aviation president Jan Toschka. Shell recently dropped its own SAF production target in favor of marketing volumes made by third-parties.
