Airbus delivered aircraft powered by sustainable aviation fuel from its Hamburg facility in Germany.
Air Transat took delivery of two brand new A321LR on lease from AerCap. Both used a 10 per cent sustainable aviation fuel blend to fly the aircraft from Hamburg to Montreal, Canada, non-stop.
Airbus has already successfully established SAF flights out of Hamburg with its Beluga transport aircraft since December 2019.
Today’s commercial delivery becomes the first aircraft manufacturer offering customers the option of receiving new jetliners with sustainable fuel in their tanks.
Such delivery flights have been available since 2016, starting from the Airbus headquarters production facility in Toulouse, France, followed by Mobile, Alabama, USA.
