Passenger numbers are steadily increasing each year, but airlines have been able to reduce their emissions by around half. Aircraft that are more fuel-efficient, new biofuel options, and other attempts to reduce jet fuel use are all contributing factors.
Some airlines are also taking a more aggressive stance against climate change. They are investing in ecologically sustainable projects to reduce or offset their carbon footprint.
With that in mind, Malaysia Airlines has announced that it will be using Sustainable Aviation Fuel (SAF) for the first time on a passenger flight in conjunction with World Environment Day this 5 June 2022.
The SAF-powered flights on 5 June will be fuelled by a mixture of around 38% SAF and conventional jet fuel. This sustainable fuel option, generated from 100% renewable waste and residual raw materials (such as cooking oil), can lower greenhouse gas emissions by up to 80% when compared to standard fossil jet fuel.
Reaffirming the national airline’s commitment to a Sustainable Tomorrow, these flights demonstrate considerable progress toward a cleaner, more viable fuel source for regular flights by 2025.
To be a part of this historic occasion, Malaysia Airlines is inviting guests to travel on the SAF-powered flights listed below on 5 June 2022:
MH603 Kuala Lumpur (KUL) to Singapore (SIN) — Departing 12:25, Arriving 13:30
MH606 Singapore (SIN) to Kuala Lumpur (KUL) — Departing 14:40, Arriving 15:40
