According to a statement, AEGEAN is committed to the long-term sustainability goals of the aviation industry and is taking an active role to support various initiatives toward achieving net zero by 2050.

As part of its sustainability strategy, AEGEAN managed to significantly reduce its carbon dioxide (CO2) emissions by investing in a large Airbus A320/321neo fleet renewal program.

Launch of SAF program

The launch of its SAF program aims to further reduce its environmental footprint while continuing to expand its network and operations.

AEGEAN has joined forces with longtime partner Hellenic Petroleum s.a, one of the leading energy groups in South-East Europe, for the supply of SAF blend on flights departing from its Thessaloniki Airport “Makedonia” hub with flights from Athens International Airport (AIA) are expected to follow soon.

This strategic initiative for the supply of SAF in Greece was welcomed by the Greek government, as it enables Greece to make an effective contribution to all international efforts that target to make air transport more sustainable.

It is also the first step for airlines and airports to align in a proactive manner with the upcoming European Union (EU) SAF targets by 2025.
