Trollhättan-Vänersborg Airport in the southwestern part of Sweden will be the world’s first to use sustainable aviation fuel on all flights.

Trollhättan-Vänersborg will offer only blended sustainable aviation fuel (SAF) for all aircraft refuelling at the airport, which will significantly reduce greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions of departing flights. Neste will supply its Neste MY Sustainable Aviation Fuel to the Trollhättan airport in a 30-40% blend with conventional jet fuel. The airport will make it available for refuelling by the end of June.

Västflyg, a Swedish commercial airline, will be the first airline powering all its flights with this fuel blend. This includes regular routes between Trollhättan and Bromma as well as between Trollhättan and Visby and all Västflyg charter flights from Trollhättan. 

“With our investment into SAF, we wish to accelerate the transition to a more sustainable aviation industry. Together with Västflyg and Neste, we want to inspire and pave the way for a more sustainable future for the aviation industry,” said Anna Råhnängen, airport manager at Trollhättan-Vänersborg Airport.
