Nippon Cargo Airlines to use Nestes SAF

Nippon Cargo Airlines (NCA), the only international cargo airline based in Japan, has, for the first time, used Neste's sustainable aviation fuel (SAF) for several cargo flights in November and December this year. The SAF is supplied by Neste at Amsterdam Airport Schiphol.

The flights with SAF are a result of NCA's commitment to making consistent efforts to reduce fuel consumption and CO2 emissions, including using SAFs, says an official release from Neste.

"NCA has used sustainable aviation fuel supplied by Neste on its flights from Amsterdam," says Hitoshi Watanabe, Vice President & General Manager, Corporate Planning, NCA. "NCA is implementing various fuel saving activities to reduce CO2 emissions, and among them using SAF is considered one of the most effective measures to reduce emissions. Therefore, we are confident that these flights with SAF will become a big step for NCA. Neste is the leading SAF producer in the world, and NCA aims to expand business activities with Neste to increase the number of flights with SAF. NCA will source SAF at all of its destinations and work hard to tackle carbon emission issues to meet various customers' demands."

Sami Jauhiainen, Vice President, APAC, Renewable Aviation, Neste adds: "As the world's leading producer of SAF, Neste is working together with companies in the air cargo sector to help them reduce the air transport related emissions. We are excited that NCA has used our Neste MY Sustainable Aviation Fuel for these international flights. Our increased SAF production capacity of 1.5 million tonnes per annum by the end of 2023 positions us well to support the growing international SAF demand from airlines like NCA."
