Microsoft to Purchase SAF Credits for Alaska Airlines

October 23, 2020 – Microsoft, SkyNRG and Alaska Airlines announce a unique partnership to purchase sustainable aviation fuel (SAF). Microsoft will purchase SAF credits from SkyNRG to make up the difference in cost between conventional jet and SAF. SkyNRG will then supply SAF to the airport fueling system used by Alaska Airlines, targeting the fuel consumption associated with Microsoft employee travel on some of their most travelled routes, namely between Seattle and Los Angeles, San Francisco, and San Jose. This latest effort by Microsoft to reduce its carbon impact is in line with their sustainability goals, which include being carbon negative by 2030. Specific details including the quantity of SAF that will be purchased has not been released.
