The first ever in-flight emissions study using 100% sustainable aviation fuel (SAF) on a widebody commercial passenger aircraft has been launched.

Airbus has joined forces with German research centre DLR, Rolls Royce and SAF producer Neste in the Emission and Climate Impact of Alternative Fuels (ECLIF3) project looking into the effects of 100% SAF on aircraft emissions and performance.
