Buying biofuel is possible when booking tickets, or at any other time before departure. Travelers can buy biofuel corresponding to 20-minute blocks of flight time for one passenger.
On a 60-minute flight, one 20-minute block of biofuel will correspond to a third of the average fuel consumption per passenger of an average flight. For example, to buy biofuel for a ticket on a 60-minute flight, a traveler would have to purchase three blocks to cover the full flight time.
Currently (Sept 2019), prices are set at 10 USD/10 EUR/100 SEK/100 NOK/70 DKK per block.
The amount of biofuel a traveler buys will not necessarily be used on the actual flight the traveler has bought a ticket for, but it will be used to replace fossil fuel to the equivalent amount in SAS’ operations.
SAS makes no profit on the transaction. Read more on our use of biofuel under “Biofuel, the bridge to more sustainable air travel.”
