AEGEAN expands SAF programme at key European airports


Greek airline AEGEAN announced that it is expanding its sustainable aviation fuel (SAF) program across key European airports in partnership with with Shell & MOH Aviation.

The move will help AEGEAN secure SAF supplies at Stockholm Arlanda and London Heathrow airports.

The airline aims to gradually roll out the program across its network wherever SAF becomes available.

“Our collaboration with Shell and MOH Aviation allows us to expand our SAF program to international airports, reducing our environmental impact,” said Dimitris Gerogiannis, CEO, AEGEAN.

“While supply limitations pose a challenge, partnerships like this keep us optimistic about expanding operations while lowering CO2 emissions.”

Meanwhile, Stamatis Petsis, CEO, Shell & MOH Aviation, said: “We’re proud to cooperate with AEGEAN in supplying SAF to major airports. This initiative reflects AEGEAN’s commitment to sustainability, and we hope it inspires others in the Greek aviation industry.”

In 2021, AEGEAN became the first Greek airline to use SAF on a flight. Since July 2022, all departing aircraft from Thessaloniki Makedonia Airport, their second-largest hub, utilise SAF blends.

Additionally, the airline also secured SAF supplies for Oslo Gardermoen Airport in late 2023.
