0 132

The Lufthansa Group and OMV have signed a Memorandum of Understanding (MoU) for the supply of more than 800.000 tons of SAF for the years 2023 – 2030. The companies plan to expand their existing partnership by adding new locations for the Production and takeover of SAF, as well as the new technologies. OMV has already supplied SAF to Austrian Airlines, part of the Lufthansa Group, at Vienna International Airport since March 2022.

With the expansion of the cooperation, the Lufthansa Group can drive the availability and use of SAF as an essential element for a CO2-neutral future. The Lufthansa Group is continuously looking at options for long-term SAF purchase contracts and is already the largest SAF customer in Europe. For OMV, the planned SAF supply partnership with the Lufthansa Group is a further step towards reducing CO2 emissions and providing solutions for the sustainable development of the aviation industry.

The Lufthansa Group has set ambitious climate protection goals and aims to achieve a CO2-neutral balance by 2050. Already by 2030, the aviation group wants to halve its net CO2 emissions compared to 2019. This makes the Lufthansa Group the first aviation group in Europe with a science-based CO2 reduction target in line with the goals of the Paris Climate Agreement.
