03 Apr 2024In Parliament

Mr Dennis Tan Lip Fong asked the Minister for Transport with regard to the new requirement for flights departing Singapore to use Sustainable Aviation Fuel (SAF) from 2026

a.     what are the metrics to monitor for global developments and the wider availability and adoption of SAF that the Ministry will use to determine whether to raise the SAF targets; and

b.     whether the Ministry has any projected targets for the use of SAF from 2026 to 2050.

Reply by Minister for Transport Chee Hong Tat:

1.     Our approach to build a Sustainable Aviation Fuel (SAF) ecosystem strikes a balance between economic competitiveness and environmental sustainability.

2.     As explained in our announcement during the Changi Aviation Summit in February 2024, we will take into account developments such as the approaches of other air hubs towards SAF adoption, and the scale of SAF production and availability of supply around the world, before deciding on our SAF target beyond 2026.
