Riga-based carrier airBaltic’s sustainability engagement project is working very well, as passengers purchasing sustainable aviation fuel (SAF) ancillaries is a success.

Throughout the Summer season, this product has been integrated into nearly 5,000 bookings, with passengers paying a small fee of 2.99EUR per person per flight for these flights to be powered by SAF.

Without further ado, let’s get into it…

Commenting on the positive results created from engagement in sustainable aviation fuels was Zita Baranova, the Head of Sustainability for Riga-based airBaltic:

“Within the Baltic region, aviation plays a pivotal role in maintaining regional connectivity, and this summer, we have observed that our passengers are starting to consider more environmentally-friendly air travel options.”

“However, there is a room for a future growth and we view sustainability as a step-by-step shift towards progressively greater integration of SAF.”

“We eagerly welcome every passenger who contributes in fostering the demand for environmentally more friendly fuel.”

“Together, we are creating a growing market for SAF, which is one of the key tools on the road to climate-neutral aviation.”

“We are committed to enhancing the availability of SAF to provide our passengers with a broader range of choices when they decide to make more sustainable travel purchases.”

Such SAF purchases have been utilised on flights to the likes of Zurich, Berlin, Tallinn, Helsinki, London and Frankfurt.

More is clearly to come from the Riga-based carrier, with all eyes on them now to see how much further they take their initiatives.
