SAS, Inter Terminals team up for SAF hub in Sweden


Scandinavian Airline System (SAS) and Inter Terminals Sweden are collaborating to expand aviation fuel facility in the Port of Gävle, Sweden, repurposing existing tanks to create a dedicated blending and storage facility for sustainable aviation fuel (SAF).

The new facility is expected to be operational by summer 2024.

“Our demand for SAF is significant, but there is a need for investments throughout the entire value chain to enable us to transition to more sustainable flights. That’s why it’s important for us to partner up and have a proactive approach to ensure a sufficient and efficient SAF value chain,” said Ann-Sofie Hörlin, head of sustainability, SAS. 

“SAS use of SAF today is low in comparison to our future demand and needs to increase significantly as the usage of SAF directly correlates with lower flight emissions.”

SAS has an ambitious environmental target to fuel SAF equivalent to SAS’ fuel consumption in Scandinavia by 2030. To achieve this target, SAS said that it looking to increase its usage of SAF each year.

Inter Terminals Sweden, located near Stockholm Arlanda Airport, said it is well-positioned to support the aviation industry’s goal of achieving climate neutrality by 2050.

“We’re delighted to collaborate with SAS on this project,” said Johan Zettergren, managing director, Inter Terminals Sweden. “Our facility’s location and logistics network make us ideal contributors to a greener future for aviation.”
