United agrees to buy up to 52.5M gallons of SAF from Neste for flights from Schiphol

May 10, 2022 |

In the Netherlands, Neste and United Airlines are pleased to announce that they have signed a new purchase agreement that provides United the right to buy up to 160,000 metric tons (52.5 million gallons) of Neste MY Sustainable Aviation Fuel over the next three years to fuel United flights at Amsterdam Airport Schiphol, and potentially other airports, as well. With this agreement, United became the first U.S. airline to make an international purchase agreement for sustainable aviation fuel (SAF).

Neste will provide United with 7,500 metric tons (2.5 million gallons) of SAF in Amsterdam in the first year. United will also have the right to purchase up to 60,000 metric tons (20 million gallons) in the second year, and up to 90,000 metric tons (30 million gallons) in the third year, at Amsterdam or other locations that Neste can supply throughout the globe, as Neste increases its SAF production globally.

This supply agreement is enabled by Neste’s ambitious growth strategy, which will see the company producing 1.5 million tons (515 million gallons) of SAF per annum by the end of 2023. Neste has been producing and delivering SAF since 2011 and has a proven track record of supplying SAF to customers in Europe, Asia and the Americas.
