Teesside becomes UK’s first airport to use SAF with Air France-KLM

January 30, 2023 |

In the UK, Teesside has become the UK’s first airport to partner with Air France-KLM for the airline’s programme to boost the use of Sustainable Aviation Fuel (SAF).

KLM Royal Dutch Airlines, part of the Air France-KLM group, connects passengers worldwide from Teesside to more than 160 countries via its link to the global Amsterdam Schiphol hub.

Air France and KLM are now working on their ambitious road map towards decarbonisation, modernising its fleet and investing in alternative, non-fossil, fuels.

This new programme is allowing the airline to partner with organisations and companies such as Teesside Airport to accelerate the production, adoption and usage of SAF – which currently makes up less than 1% of fuel used on commercial flights – transitioning from traditional fuels and reducing the CO2 footprint of air travel.
