Cathay Pacific refueled four of its cargo flights on June 7, 14, 28 and 30, departing from Singapore-Changi airport to Hong Kong for the first three and Penang for the last, with SAF (" Sustainable aviation fuel " or " carburant d'aviation durable "). Made from 100% used cooking oil, SAF meets European ISCC (International Sustainability and Carbon Certification) standards. It can reduce CO2 emissions by up to 90% over its entire life cycle. It was blended and supplied by ExxonMobil Asia Pacific Pte Ltd. This follows the use of blended SAF, loaded at Hong Kong International Airport, on selected flights last year, and on delivery flights of its new Airbus A350 from Europe over the past six years.
10% of SAF used in 2030
Cathay Pacific continues to make progress towards its goal of using sustainable aviation fuel (SAF) for 10% of its total fuel consumption by 2030 by embarking SAF on its commercial flights for the first time ever outside its Hong Kong hub. The airline launched the "Cathay Pacific Corporate SAF" program in 2022, the first major program of its kind in Asia, with eight companies as launch customers. It offers corporate customers the opportunity to reduce their carbon footprint associated with business travel or air freight by contributing to the use of SAF. Cathay Pacific plans to add further companies to the program in 2023.
