Latam Cargo: first international flight with SAF

Latam Group has completed its first international flight with sustainable aviation fuel (SAF), with Latam Cargo Chile flying an aircraft from Zaragoza airport in Spain to North America.


SAF is a biofuel made from alternative biomass sources such as waste, fats, and oils, which are co-processed with fossil feedstocks fuel to produce synthetic, low-CO2 fuel. In this case, 30,000 liters of co-processed SAF made from cooking oil were used, combined with traditional jet fuel.


The SAF used for this flight has been internationally certified according to the procedures established by the International Sustainability Carbon Certification (ISCC EU) to ensure its sustainability. Latam Group was thus the first airline group to procure its SAF from Air BP at Zaragoza airport. (cj)
