Kenya Airways (KQ) announced participation in the second edition of the Sustainable Flight Challenge (TSFC), an initiative of the SkyTeam Alliance. This year, the TSFC brings together 22 airlines committed to executing the most sustainable flight possible.

KQ will pilot the use of sustainable aviation fuel (SAF), operating a Boeing B787-8 Dreamliner flight for the return flight between Nairobi and Amsterdam on May 25, 2023 – with the aim to generate valuable data and insights that can inform policy decisions, regulatory frameworks, and industry best practices related to SAF.

“This year as our red tail goes green again, we aim to support the industry in achieving net zero by 2050. We are committed to adopting better practices and creating partnerships with people of similar vision.”

The airline outlined several areas it will submit for consideration, including: sustainable-flight and ground-operations initiatives; a sustainably curated in-flight menu; a carbon-offsetting program for customers; E-mobility for guests; travel light policy; and waste management initiatives.

The winners of the 2023 Sustainable Flight Challenge will be honoured at an awards ceremony in October.
