Korean Air will expand its cargo sustainable aviation fuel (SAF) program through the partnership with global logistics company CEVA Logistics.

Korean Air’s customer-participation SAF program was launched in September 2023 to engage industry partners in supporting sustainable practices.

The signing ceremony took place at the Air Cargo China Conference 2024 in Shanghai.

Under the agreement, CEVA Logistics will support the airline’s usage of SAF in its air cargo operations, and the airline will then share carbon emissions reductions with CEVA Logistics.

Both companies are committed to promoting SAF usage and raising awareness about reducing carbon emissions in the logistics sector.

Jaedong Eum, Senior Vice President and Head of Cargo Business Division, Korean Air said: “We are pleased with the strong support from businesses and cargo customers for our SAF program.

“We will continue to build partnerships that enable our customers to actively and directly contribute to decarbonization efforts.”

Olivier Boccara, Air & Ocean Leader APAC, CEVA Logistics “One of CEVA’s key short-term levers to promote decarbonization hinges on collaboration.

“Through developing new solutions for our customers with airline partners like Korean Air, we are able to contribute to meaningful change in our industry.

“Extending our SAF offering into the Asian market is a tangible step we can take now as we look ahead to more advances in fuels and other technologies to decarbonize air freight and the global supply chain.”
