All Nippon Airways (ANA) is extending its Sustainable Aviation Fuel (SAF) initiative to include business travel.
The SAF Flight Initiative, which launched in October 2021, aims to expand the use of SAF and reduce business travel-related emissions.
At launch the scheme was only open to the cargo sector but the carrier is widening it to include corporate customers and offering certification on carbon emission reduction for those that enroll in it.
Shinichi Inoue, executive vice president, sales & marketing, ANA, said: “Since the launch of the SAF Flight Initiative for the cargo sector in October last year, the response we received was much bigger than we expected, both in Japan and overseas. With the urgent need to address climate change, I believe the environmental awareness in the corporate world will continue to expand this year as well.”
Other airlines have been unveiling sustainability initiatives in recent weeks with Air France-KLM announcing the addition of a SAF surcharge to bookings while JetBlue unveiled a sustainability programme for corporates.
