SAF powered Fly Red Sea takes off in Saudi Arabia


Fly Red Sea announced the take-off of its first seaplane flight in Saudi Arabia.

The company announced that it plans to fuel its fleet of seaplanes using Sustainable Aviation Fuel (SAF) from day one of operations.

Fly Red Sea is also exploring the possibility of fully-electric seaplanes, and is continuing to work closely with ZeroAvia to trial retrofitting Cessna Caravan Seaplanes with hydrogen-electric propulsion technology.

The flights will transport guests across the Red Sea’s island resorts, including St. Regis Red Sea Resort and Nujuma, A Ritz Carlton Reserve.
