India key nation for sustainable aerospace programme: Boeing

Monday, 12 December 2022 | PTI | n New Delhi

American plane maker Boeing on Sunday said India is a priority country for its ambitious programme to decarbonise aerospace globally from both the civilian and military aircraft and to chart a path toward a sustainable future.

Brian, Boeing’s Vice President for Global Sustainability Policy and Partnerships, said the company is confident of delivering commercial airplanes capable of flying on 100 per cent Sustainable Aviation Fuel (SAF) by 2030.

“India is hugely important to Boeing and to our aviation business, but also to our sustainability journey. I think some of the commitments and potential that we see here in India to become self-reliant through the scaling of sustainable aviation fuel is really promising,” he told PTI.

In a significant global announcement, Boeing said last year that its commercial airplanes will be capable and certified to fly on 100 per cent sustainable aviation fuels by 2030.

There has been growing deliberations globally on curbing carbon emissions from flying.

Boeing has been a major partner of India’s aerospace sector for almost eight decades, both as the mainstay of the country’s commercial aviation sector as well as for the armed forces.
