ABTA's statement on transatlantic SAF-fuelled flight

Please find to follow ABTA’s statement on today’s transatlantic flight with sustainable aviation fuel.

Mark Tanzer, Chief Executive of ABTA – The Travel Association said:

“Today’s flight is a milestone in aviation’s progress towards developing a more sustainable way to fly.

“Obviously this is just one flight and there is a huge amount of work between a test flight and this becoming the norm. To make that a reality we need support from Government to develop a domestic industry in sustainable aviation fuels.

“Without this the UK would have to rely on imports; missing out on the jobs and economic value a domestic industry would bring.”
