Biofuel

SAS aims to be a driving force in sustainable aviation and in the transition toward net zero CO₂ emissions. This is achieved for example by using more sustainable aviation fuels. Compared to fossil fuels, sustainable aviation fuels e.g. biofuel, dramatically reduce the climate-impacting CO₂ emissions in the lifecycle and is key on our journey toward net-zero aviation.

More about biofuel

SAS has created a model where travelers can purchase 20-minute blocks of biofuel per flight.

Prices are set at 10 USD/10 EUR/100 SEK/100 NOK/70 DKK per block of biofuel.

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.

You can also choose one of our ticket types, Go Smart Bio or Plus Pro Bio. The ticket includes the cost of approx. 50% biofuel, which is calculated on an average journey, corresponding to approx. 60 min on Swedish or Norwegian domestic, 60 min within Scandinavia, 35 min on Danish domestic or 1h 30 min on European flights. 

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.

Compared to fossil fuels, sustainable aviation fuels such as biofuel dramatically reduce the climate-impacting CO₂ emissions in their lifecycle. The amount of biofuel purchased will be used to replace the equivalent amount of fossil fuel in SAS’ operations. SAS guarantees that the purchase of biofuel takes place within 12 months.

SAS makes no profit from biofuel sales. The amount of biofuel SAS sells is in addition to the amount of biofuel we have already committed to buy.

SAS only uses certified and sustainable aviation fuels made from sources that do not affect the general availability of crops used for food production, access to drinking water, biodiversity or land.

Biofuel is delivered to SAS at its main airports at Stockholm and Oslo. Legislation allows up to 50 percent biofuel to be used per flight. All SAS aircrafts are certified to be able to mix 50/50 fossil and biofuel.

EuroBonus members earn 500 Extra points per purchased 20-minute block of biofuel. Points accrued will be distributed evenly among all passengers in the booking who have provided their EuroBonus number by the time the first leg is flown.

EuroBonus members are awarded with additional 400 Basic points within Scandinavia or 700 Basic points on European flights when they choose Go Smart Bio or Plus Pro Bio (vs. Go Smart and Plus Pro)

Right now! To celebrate our new Bio tickets, we offer an additional 450 Basic points our members earn per flight when they choose Go Smart Bio and Plus Pro Bio. Valid for travel until December 31 2023.

Points will be visible in your EuroBonus statement 4-7 days after the first flight of your booking is flown.

No retroactive registration of EuroBonus points for biofuel is possible.
