AEGEAN launches a Sustainable Aviation Fuel program

In Greece, local airline AEGEAN announced its first sustainable aviation fuel program, which would enable the company to become the only carrier in Greece to operate part of its domestic and international network using a SAF blend.

AEGEAN joined forces with its partner Hellenic Petroleum for the supply of SAF blend on flights departing from its Thessaloniki Airport “Makedonia” hub. Flights from Athens International Airport are expected to follow soon.

AEGEAN also noted that it is committed to the long-term sustainability goals of the aviation industry and said it is taking an active role to support various initiatives towards achieving net zero by 2050.

“This strategic initiative for supply of SAF in Greece was welcomed by the Greek government, as it enables Greece to make an effective contribution to all international efforts that target to make air transport more sustainable,” the airline said in a statement.
