Air New Zealand to receive first Neste SAF shipment next week

September 15, 2022 |

In New Zealand, Air New Zealand will next week welcome the first shipment of Neste MY Sustainable Aviation FuelTM (SAF) into New Zealand (‘Aotearoa’) ready to power the airline’s fleet. The shipment of SAF is imported into New Zealand in partnership with Z Energy.

The 1.2 million liter (937 tons) import of neat SAF is equivalent to fueling around 400 return flights between Auckland and Wellington. Neste MY Sustainable Aviation Fuel use in its neat form reduces greenhouse gas emissions by up to 80% over the fuel’s life cycle compared to fossil jet fuel use.

The first shipment will be used to help test and set up the supply chain for importing SAF into New Zealand. As SAF is a drop in fuel, it will be put into the fuel system at New Zealand’s Marsden Point harbor, where it will make its way down to Auckland Airport and will be delivered to Air New Zealand through the regular jet fuel supply chain.
