Volga-Dnepr Group, Airbus, Gazprom Neft, Aeroflot Airlines, National Research Center Zhukovsky Institute, Federal State Unitary Enterprise State Research Institute of Civil Aviation, and S7 Group signed Declaration with the aim to set Eurasian SAF alliance. 

The main task of the newly set alliance will be the development of a favourable ecosystem to ramp up SAF production in Russia and stimulate its further usage. The alliance members will prepare the roadmap to coordinate future joint efforts. 

Denis Fisenko, General Director of AirBridgeCargo Airlines, part of Volga-Dnepr Group, highlights: “Volga-Dnepr Group is one of the major air cargo market players in the world. From our side, we are taking actions to mitigate a negative environmental impact – initiatives aimed at fuel consumption efficiency, deployment of eco-friendly freighters with lower CO2 emissions, the introduction of GoGreen initiatives and, most importantly, our efforts to increase load factor and guarantee that we transport vital cargoes other than empty space. The creation of the Eurasian SAF alliance is another step towards a more sustainable air cargo industry. We believe that only collaboration and joint efforts will help us to overcome the barriers preventing SAF introduction in Russia”. 

The Alliance is an inclusive and open ecosystem for mutual activities of industry participants along the entire SAF value chain, from fuel producers, airlines, airports, aircraft manufacturers, up to engine manufacturers, research organizations, that are interested in fruitful cooperation.
