Neste supplies SAF to Hotelplan under book-and-claim programme

Neste will supply SAF worth $331,800 to Hotelplan Group through its book-and-claim programme.

Neste announced that it will supply sustainable aviation fuel (SAF) worth CHF300,000 ($331,800) to Swiss travel company Hotelplan Group through the refiner’s book-and-claim programme Neste Impact.

“We are excited Hotelplan Group is purchasing SAF via our Neste Impact solution, enabling them to reduce the greenhouse gas emissions from their aviation activities and to offer their customers a lower-emission alternative for traveling for business or leisure,” said Kimmo Salminen, vice president renewable products, Neste.

Through this book-and-claim purchase, Hotelplan will offer SAF to its entire customer base, encompassing both leisure and business travel sectors. Flights taken by Hotelplan Group’s customers are the main source of its greenhouse gas (CO2e) emissions, accounting for 87% of such emissions.

Hotelplan Group already uses SAF for some of its own business trips.

“SAF is currently only available in limited quantities and is more expensive to produce than conventional jet fuel. By purchasing for the entire Hotelplan Group, we can secure larger volumes of SAF and make it available to our customers. This will also allow us to support the ongoing development and scaling of this innovative technology,” said Laura Meyer, CEO, Hotelplan Group.
