The agreement we signed with our long-term partner Bolloré Logistics is a significant achievement, one we hope to build on in the future. Taking this step with a trusted customer is important for Cargolux and it highlights both our companies’ engagement for environmentally-sound operations,” said Domenico Ceci, executive vice president for sales and marketing.

Pierre Houé, deputy coo of Bolloré Logistics, added: “SAF is a key solution for Bolloré Logistics to decarbonise transportation and reach our carbon reduction targets set up in our CSR programme – powering sustainable logistics. Building a strong partnership with a crucial partner like Cargolux is critical to enable the aviation industry to operate a transition towards a more sustainable future.”
