Japanese Airlines (JAL) has begun utilizing sustainable aviation fuel (SAF) on one of its international flights as part of a week-long trial, according to Japan Broadcasting Corporation (NHK) reports today.

The trial, which started on Thursday, allocates 11% of the fuel used on flight JL6 from Haneda Airport in Tokyo to New York City to sustainable aviation fuel.

JAL's objective is for sustainable aviation fuel to make up 1% of the fuel used on all its flights by 2025. This percentage is planned to increase to 10% by 2030.

Nishioka Momoko, an official at Japan Airlines, commented that introducing daily operations and upgrading equipment is important, but it is essential to make fuel sustainable, such as sustainable aviation fuel, in order to achieve carbon neutrality.

This initiative by Japanese Airlines aligns with global efforts to reduce the aviation industry's carbon footprint and contribute to a more sustainable and environmentally friendly future for air travel.
