Breitling and SWISS ink partnership to promote SAF

September 22, 2022 |

In Switzerland, SWISS International Air Lines and watchmaker Breitling have entered into a partnership in which Breitling will purchase sustainable aviation fuel for all its business-related flights operated by SWISS.

With the purchase of the respective amount of SAF, Breitling said it will reduce its flight-related CO2 emissions by 80%. Breitling also said it will achieve carbon neutrality on its air travel by offsetting the remaining CO2 emissions through investments in high-quality carbon offsets. 

Georges Kern, CEO at Breitling, said: “Achieving CO2 neutrality on our work-related SWISS flights is an important way for us to reduce our emissions and, through the purchase of SAF, make a small contribution to the sustainability transition of the aviation industry.”

The SAF currently used by SWISS is produced from biogenic waste, such as used cooking oils, and results in 80% fewer CO2 emissions than the fossil fuel alternative.
