Finnair teams with air traffic operator to track emissions and expands SAF use

February 18, 2021 |

In Finland, Finland’s air navigation service provider Fintraffic ANS and Finnair have joined forces to reduce CO2 emissions and enhance commercial aviation’s environmental footprint.

Under the new initiative, Finnair will share fuel consumption data with Fintraffic ANS and the parties will together explore how to support airlines in their bid to drive down and meet new lower emissions targets.

On February 17, Finnair flew from Helsinki to Kittilä in Northern Finland, and the different phases of the flight and their impact on fuel consumption are followed on both companies Instagram and Twitter accounts.

Anne Larilahti, Finnair Vice President of Sustainability said, ”This flight also uses sustainable aviation fuel  (SAF)  – with book and claim principle –  purchased by our customers.”

”In the next phase of our SAF use, through our partnership with Finnish sustainable fuel provider Neste, will enable us to use SAF at our home hub in Helsinki Airport.”
