Korean Air and Yusen Logistics have teamed up to boost sustainable aviation fuel (SAF) use in air cargo.

The agreement was signed at the Yusen Logistics headquarters in Tokyo, making Yusen Logistics the first cargo SAF partner for Korean Air in Japan. Together, they aim to encourage the adoption of SAF in the Asian region, aligning with the aviation industry's climate goals.

Jaedong Eum, Senior Vice President and Head of Cargo Business Division at Korean Air, said, "We are delighted to welcome Yusen Logistics as our cargo SAF program partner, to promote and implement SAF usage jointly. We remain committed to the industry’s climate change goals and the sustainable development of the air cargo industry."

Eisuke Fukagawa, Global Head of Airfreight Forwarding Group at Yusen Logistics, said, "Yusen Logistics is also committed to the 2050 net-zero target. With this partnership with Korean Air, we can support our customers to decarbonise their supply chains and help stimulate a larger supply for SAF."

Korean Air had previously launched a programme in September 2023, allowing air cargo customers to purchase SAF. The airline shares the resulting carbon emission reductions with customers, setting a precedent in Korea's air cargo industry.

The airline actively collaborates with governments, clients, and oil refinery companies to accelerate SAF use and establish a streamlined domestic SAF infrastructure in Korea.
