In the News: Atlas Operates Transatlantic Flight On Sustainable Fuel

On December 21, 2020 an Atlas Air Boeing 747-400F flew a transatlantic mission using sustainable aviation fuel (SAF). The flight, which Atlas ran as a test to examine ways to become a more environmentally friendly carrier, flew from Spain’s Zaragoza Airport (ZAZ) to Mexico City International Airport (MEX).

“Innovative sustainable aviation fuel test projects demonstrate our ability to partner with our customers and suppliers to help create a more sustainable future for the air cargo industry and global commerce,” said John Dietrich. “Through ongoing meaningful partnerships, we will drive wider acceptance and availability of SAF, which will lower costs and have a positive impact on our industry and the environment.”
