Results


 Unit FY2020*  FY2019 FY2018 Base year
2010
CO2  / passenger kilometer
 gram  111  95  95 109,7 
CO2 / cargo tonne kilometer flown  gram  598  532  521  
CO2 / cargo tonne kilometer trucked  gram  150  135  129  

* Our CO2 emissions per passenger and cargo kilometer increase in 2020 is a consequence of the significantly lower cabin and load factor as a result of the dramatic reduction in demand from mid-March 2020.

Biofuel:

During FY 2020, SAS used approximately 670 tonnes sustainable aviation fuel. The usage is derived from the customer SAF upgrade ancillary service and the Norwegian blend-in obligation introduced 1 January 2020
