United Will Run A Boeing 737 Engine On 100% SAF With Passengers

Today United Airlines is continuing its campaign to accelerate the uptake of Sustainable Aviation Fuels (SAFs) across the industry. The airline will run a Boeing 737 MAX engine on a blend of 100% SAF while it is flying from Chicago to Washington with more than 100 passengers onboard. This will be the first time that such a feat has been attempted.

This is really good to hear and a step in the right direction! Well done United :tada:

Good luck UNITED!

It definitely is. Also, I believe that SAF will be the future of commercial aviation as a whole since it is more viable and far easier to implement and develop than hydrogen or electricity-powered aircraft.

I think it a long term solution. Whilst this is happening I have no problem if they develop ‘normal’ looking hydrogen powered aircraft
