JAL and Shell Aviation sign agreement for SAF

Japan Airlines (JAL) has signed an agreement with Shell Aviation for its aircraft to be refuelled in Los Angeles, USA with sustainable aviation fuel (SAF) from 2025. This agreement supports JAL’s ESG target of replacing 1% of its whole jet fuel amount with SAF in fiscal year 2025.

Under the agreement, Shell will supply JAL with SAF volumes equivalent to its current estimated jet fuel uplifts in Los Angeles over the supply period.

The SAF supplied emits 75% less CO2 than conventional jet fuel when used neat and the associated lifecycle emission reduction from this agreement amounts to more than 47,000 tons (42,600 tonnes) of CO2 on an annual basis.

JAL Group will continue to accelerate SAF procurements globally and make efforts toward replacing 10% of its jet fuel consumption with SAF in 2030 in order to achieve net zero emission by 2050.
