Kenya Airways Operating First Flight From Africa Using Eni Sustainable Mobility’s Aviation Biofuel

Kenya Airways has become the first African airline to use sustainable aviation fuel (SAF) provided by Eni for a long-haul flight. The airline mixed Eni Biojet, which contains 100% biogenic feedstock and is suitable for use with up to 50% of JetA1 fuel, with conventional jet fuel for the flight from Nairobi to Amsterdam. The initiative is part of the Sustainable Flight Challenge, a friendly competition between SkyTeam member airlines. All aircraft departing from European airports will be required to incorporate a proportion of SAF from 2025. Eni and Kenya Airways are working on a broader agreement for long-term collaboration.
