Amazon first to fly on SAF from Cologne Bonn
Cologne Bonn airport is one of the first German airports where Neste MY SAF is now available for all operators. SAF will provide shippers the opportunity to reduce the greenhouse gas emissions caused by their air freight.

Neste, a leading provider of sustainable aviation fuel (SAF), has set up a supply of Neste MY sustainable aviation fuel at Cologne Bonn airport. By doing so, Neste is helping to meet increasing levels of demand from air freight and corporate customers at Cologne Bonn. AFS, the leading provider for aviation fuelling services in Germany, is supporting Neste to serve this market. The first flight fuelled with Neste MY SAF was a cargo flight in early June operated by ASL Airlines on behalf of Amazon.

“We are proud to be able to offer our operators sustainable alternative aviation fuels,” says Johan VanNeste, president and CEO of Flughafen Köln/Bonn. “We are already using numerous technical innovations at Cologne Bonn, from solar panels and LED technology to innovative building services and alternatively powered vehicles and equipment on the apron. Employing sustainable aviation fuel is another important step towards our long-term goal of CO2-neutral flight.”

VP of renewable aviation for Europe and Neste Jonathan Wood adds: “Despite the challenging business environment, the aviation industry, and the cargo sector in particular, is showing increased commitment to invest in sustainable aviation fuel in order to offer lower-carbon fuels to its customers. We are really pleased to welcome Cologne Bonn airport to the growing network of airports with SAF availability and look forward to making further progress in reducing aviation-related greenhouse gas emissions.”
