United's Flight for the Planet

12 June 2019 – On June 5th, World Environment Day, United Airlines embarked on the Flight for the Planet, which they publicized as the most eco-friendly commercial flight in the history of aviation. The flight departed Chicago’s O’Hare Airport bound for LAX on a 30/70 sustainable aviation fuel (SAF) blend and utilized zero cabin waste efforts, carbon offsetting and operational efficiencies. United continues to be an advocate for SAF with this flight, their current use of SAF on a continuous basis, and their renewed contract with World Energy Paramount to purchase up to 10 million gallons of cost-competitive SAF over the next two years.
