ANA to fly domestic routes on Neste SAF

November 14, 2022 |

In Japan, All Nippon Airways (ANA) announced its second ANA Green Jet will enter service on regular scheduled domestic flights. To commemorate its inaugural take off, ANA will use sustainable aviation fuel (SAF) on the aircraft, marking the first time ANA will use SAF produced by Neste on domestic flights.

The second ANA Green Jet began service on November 14 on the Tokyo Haneda-Fukuoka route. The aircraft will feature the same technologies and services as the first ANA Green Jet that took flight for international routes on October 5, 2022, such as a special material with riblet texture which is expected to have a “shark skin effect” in which ANA will study the decrease in air resistance and CO2 emission reduction of the aircraft.

In 2020, ANA became the first Japanese airline to enter into a mid-to-long-term procurement agreement with Neste. Since then, ANA has regularly procured SAF from Neste, the world’s leading producer of renewable diesel and sustainable aviation fuel, for use on scheduled international flights departing from Japan.

The ANA Group has set a goal of replacing at least 10% of its jet fuel with SAF by FY2030 and of becoming carbon neutral by FY2050, and is taking a variety of measures to expand the use of SAF. As a leading airline in Japan, we will continue to proactively work to incorporate initiatives to reduce CO2 emissions and contribute to delivering solutions to environmental issues.
