Virgin Flies Atlantic On Sustainable Aviation Fuel

What’s all the fuss about a Virgin Atlantic Boeing 787 flying from London Heathrow to New York JFK, after all this is something that happens every day! However, today Flight100 is very different from all of the other flights for one reason it uses Sustainable Aviation Fuel (SAF) instead of the usual fossil-derived aviation fuel.

The Sustainable Aviation Fuel (SAF) is made from 88% HEFA (Hydroprocessed Esters and Fatty Acids) made from waste fats and 12% SAK (Synthetic Aromatic Kerosene) is made from plant sugars. The object of the flight is to prove that firstly it is practical and secondly a viable replacement for the current aviation fuel as the industry aims for Net Zero 2050.
