SpiceJet Airline Commits to Becoming Major SAF User

October 4, 2019 – At the UN’s Sustainable Development Goals Climate Summit in New York last month, the CEO of the Indian airline SpiceJet announced the airline would fly 100 million passengers on flights fueled by sustainable aviation fuels (SAF) by 2030. That is the same number of passengers that flew on the airline in 2015. To date, the airline has flown only one SAF-propelled flight using a fuel developed from jatropha as a demonstration. SpiceJet, India’s second largest airline, said they are committed to burning less fossil fuels and emphasized the need for all stakeholders to come together to help them reach their goal.
