While I’m sure we’re familiar with global warming and the negative impacts that it has on our planet, it seems like one corporation has done more than just be aware of it.

And that corporation is Malaysia Airlines, which announced on Monday (30 May) that it will be launching its first passenger flights powered by Sustainable Aviation Fuel (SAF) on 5 June this month, the same date as World Environment Day.

And if you’re wondering what SAF contains, it’s made of used cooking oil.

Yup, you read that right.

And if you want to try out such a flight for yourself, you can.

But the tickets are selling out quickly, so continue reading to find out how you can book your tickets!

Details Regarding SAF

Malaysia Airlines revealed that these SAF flights will operate on the Boeing 737-800 aircraft, and will use a combination of 38% SAF and conventional jet fuel.

According to The Rakyat Post, the SAF fuel is made of 100% renewable waste and residue raw materials such as cooking oil and animal fat waste.

Using SAF can also ensure that greenhouse gas emissions are reduced by up to 80%.

Through these flights, Malaysia Airlines aims to strive towards “a Sustainable Tomorrow” and “mark significant progress towards achieving a cleaner, more viable fuel source for regular flights by 2025”.

Additionally, reports by The Malaysian Reserve also revealed that Malaysia Airlines actually already used SAF to operate the airline operated carrier flight MH797 from Amsterdam to Kuala Lumpur on 17 December last year.

Flights Available for Booking

Malaysia Airlines will be also opening up SAF-powered flights for guests on 5 June, allowing passengers to experience a new and sustainable way of flying.
