November 16, 2022 |

In Hungary, Wizz Air has signed a Memorandum of Understanding (MoU) with energy firm OMV for the supply of sustainable aviation fuel for the period between 2023 and 2030. 

The MoU gives Wizz Air the opportunity to purchase up to 185,000 metric tons of SAF from OMV. 

Swain Jones, Development Officer at Wizz Air, said: “Wizz Air is committed to driving our emissions intensity down by a further 25% by the end of the decade, with the use of SAF playing a significant role in that commitment.  Supporting the production and research of SAF technologies is one of our priorities and we are pleased to co-operate with OMV to further reduce the aviation industry’s carbon footprint. The new MoU is testament to our commitment to ensuring that by choosing to fly with Wizz Air, our customers are making the most responsible choice of air travel available.”

OMV said it is implementing numerous measures to help deliver its ambitious strategic sustainability goals, and SAF is a key technology for the decarbonization of the aviation industry. The goal involves increasing SAF production to as much as 700,000 tons in 2030.
