SAS is now launching a new ancillary product that gives travelers the option to reduce their climate impact. This means that travelers can purchase biofuel when booking a ticket, or at any time before departure.

Biofuel, which reduces climate-affecting CO2 emissions by up to 80% compared to conventional jet fuel, is a key enabler to make flying more sustainable and reach SAS’ target to reduce CO2 emissions by 25% by 2030. SAS is pushing for large-scale production of advanced biofuel in Scandinavia. The volumes being produced today are insufficient and the price is three-to-four-times higher than for conventional jet fuel.

“In the short term, we believe that an important step in reducing climate impact is to increase the use of biofuel. This product makes it easier for our customers to contribute to this development. It also shows the additional costs of biofuel today and highlights the need for an increased supply of commercial biofuel,” says Karl Sandlund.

SAS makes no profit on the contribution from travelers and it will be added to the biofuels already purchased by SAS.
