“CO2 compensation in the business customer sector is an important and effective step towards CO2-neutral aviation,” says Gleb Tritus, Managing Director Lufthansa Innovation Hub. “Through the larger B2B volumes, we are increasing demand and thus promoting awareness, availability and cost-effectiveness of alternative fuels.”

SAF is added to conventional kerosene as so-called drop-in-fuel. The SAF quantity corresponding to the fuel requirements of a flight, for example, is fed into the fueling system at Frankfurt Airport. This means that the SAF is distributed to all flights that are afterwards fueled. However, CO2 neutrality is attributed to this particular flight.
