Singapore Airlines – a Headline Partner of FTE APEX Asia Expo, Singapore, 19-20 November 2024 – has signed an agreement with Neste to purchase 1,000 tonnes of neat Neste MY Sustainable Aviation Fuel. This will make Singapore Airlines and Scoot, the two airlines in the Group, the first carriers to receive sustainable aviation fuel (SAF) produced at Neste’s refinery at Singapore Changi Airport.

“This agreement with Neste is an important milestone in the SIA Group’s journey to have a minimum of 5% sustainable aviation fuel in our total fuel uplift by 2030,” said Ms Lee Wen Fen, Chief Sustainability Officer, Singapore Airlines. “Close collaboration with our partners and stakeholders, both in Singapore and globally, plays a critical role in our long-term decarbonisation goals. A more sustainable aviation industry will ensure that future generations continue to benefit from the global connectivity, economic prosperity, and people links that air travel fosters.”

Neste will blend the SAF with conventional jet fuel according to the required safety specifications and deliver the blended jet fuel to Changi Airport’s fuel hydrant system in two batches – once in the second quarter of 2024 and once in the fourth quarter of this year.

This will also mark the first direct supply of Neste’s SAF to airlines at Changi Airport, reinforcing its end-to-end SAF supply chain capabilities in Singapore.

“We are proud that Singapore Airlines and Scoot are our first customers benefiting from our integrated supply capabilities into Changi Airport,” said Alexander Kueper, Vice President Renewable Aviation, Neste. “This supply of locally-produced SAF to Changi Airport is a milestone in our journey of supporting the aviation industry and governments in the region to achieve their emissions reduction goals. Singapore is a leading aviation hub in the Asia-Pacific region and this delivery of SAF, as well as the recently announced national SAF target, will hopefully encourage the wider adoption of SAF across the broader Asia-Pacific region. We are looking forward to expanding our cooperation with Singapore Airlines, as well as supplying visiting carriers at Changi Airport.”
