Today's 100% sustainable aviation fuel-powered flight shows how we can achieve transport decarbonization now and in the future, reduce life cycle emissions by 70%, and inspire the next generation of solutions.

Virgin said flights to New York would show that SAF is a safe alternative to regular kerosene jet fuel.
