Vietnam Airlines operates its first flight using Neste’s Sustainable Aviation Fuel

Vietnam Airlines, the flag carrier airline of Vietnam, has operated its first flight using Neste MY Sustainable Aviation Fuel™. On May 27, 2024, a Vietnam Airlines Airbus A321 was refueled with blended sustainable aviation fuel (SAF) at Changi Airport in Singapore for its return flight to Hanoi, Vietnam.

This milestone makes Vietnam Airlines the first airline in Vietnam to use sustainable aviation fuel (SAF) for commercial passenger flights. Additionally, it became the first visiting carrier from the Asia-Pacific region to benefit from Neste’s SAF supply capabilities at Singapore Changi Airport. Neste produced the SAF at its Singapore refinery and, after blending it with conventional jet fuel, supplied the fuel blend to Vietnam Airlines using Neste’s integrated supply chain at Changi Airport.

“Vietnam Airlines believes that the use of SAF will help create a more sustainable future for the aviation industry, providing passengers with both excellent service quality and environmental friendliness. We are collaborating with our partners in the supply chain to expand the use of SAF in the future, thereby contributing to the successful achievement of goals related to net-zero emissions and climate change prevention,” said Nguyen Chien Thang, Executive Vice President of Vietnam Airlines.

“We are excited that Vietnam Airlines chose our Neste MY Sustainable Aviation Fuel for its first flight with SAF. The aviation industry is committed to ambitious climate targets, and sustainable aviation fuel plays a crucial role in reaching those goals. As the world’s leading producer of SAF, Neste is fully committed to supporting customers such as Vietnam Airlines on their decarbonization journey, and we look forward to expanding our cooperation,” said Carrie Song, Senior Vice President Commercial from the Renewable Products business at Neste.

Vietnam Airlines’ flight with Neste-produced sustainable aviation fuel highlights Neste’s ongoing commitment to supporting airlines in reducing aviation-related emissions and raising awareness of SAF as a key solution to lower air travel emissions.
