IAG completes green flights programme

[ June 29, 2021   //   ]

IAG Cargo has completed a programme of 16 charter flights from Stuttgart to Atlanta powered by sustainable aviation fuel (SAF).
IAG Cargo sourced an initial supply of 1.2million litres of neat SAF produced by Neste from sustainably sourced, renewable waste and residue raw materials. This collaboration marks the first time ever that passenger-freighter charter flights have operated with net-zero carbon emissions.
The last of the British Airways B787-900 flights left Stuttgart on 26 June carrying an average of 45 tonnes of cargo.
