Neste has supplied sustainable aviation fuel (SAF) to Emirates for flights departing from Singapore Changi Airport. With this, Emirates becomes the first international visiting carrier using SAF supplied at the airport from Neste’s Singapore refinery. To meet Emirates’ needs, over 2600 t (3.3 million l) of blended SAF have been supplied into the fuelling system at Changi Airport over the course of the last few weeks.

The supply of SAF to Emirates at Changi Airport is part of the partnership the two companies announced in October, 2023. Earlier this year, Neste supplied over 6000 t of blended SAF to Emirates at Amsterdam Airport Schiphol.

“Emirates’ investment into Neste-produced SAF in Singapore marks the first step forward in our SAF adoption in Asia, a region that is primed to become a leading supplier of SAF, which continues to be in short supply. While the activation of this agreement marks a milestone in our SAF journey in a new region, there’s still a lot of work to do. And as we procure SAF for the short term, we’ve got our sights set on longer-term agreements to help scale up a steady supply of SAF for our operations,” said Adel Al Redha, Deputy President and Chief Operating Officer at Emirates.

“We are excited Emirates has started using Neste MY Sustainable Aviation Fuel at Changi Airport as the newest step in our cooperation. It makes Emirates the first international visiting carrier using SAF at the airport produced at our Singapore refinery and supplied into the airport via our integrated supply chain. We are looking forward to continuing to work together on scaling up the supply of SAF for Emirates’ operations,” said Alexander Kueper, Vice President, Renewable Aviation Business at Neste.
