SpiceJet unveils blueprint for sustainable aviation fuel initiative in India

In line with its ambitious target to fly 100 million domestic passengers on Sustainable Aviation Fuel (SAF) blend by 2030, SpiceJet, under the aegis of World Economic Forum (WEF) is leading WEF’s initiative of ‘Clean Skies for Tomorrow’ (CST); which has now manifested in formulation of a blueprint, ‘Deploying Sustainable Aviation Fuels at Scale in India’.

This blueprint consists of the India case study on biofuel, feedstock availability, technology pathways and policy recommendations etc.

The CST coalition, led by the WEF brings top executives and public leaders in India, across and beyond the aviation value chain under one roof to eventually lead the transition to SAFs as part of a meaningful and proactive pathway for the industry to achieve carbon-neutral flying. A pioneer of sustainability in Indian aviation, SpiceJet plays an active role towards scaling up the use of SAF in India and serve on the prestigious Clean Skies for Tomorrow Steering Committee to advance the development of a SAF industry in India.

Ajay Singh, chairman and managing director, SpiceJet, said, “Aviation is a key economic enabler; yet increasing access to air travel and its benefits must not come at the cost of the environment. To ensure we collectively rise to the challenge, I proudly serve on the Steering Committee of the World Economic Forum’s Clean Skies for Tomorrow Coalition, working to advance the use of sustainable aviation fuels. This project and this new, seminal report are exactly what we need to speed aviation’s decarbonisation.”
