Kalmar land Airport and Kalmar Municipality, together with airlines SAS and BRA and fuel supplier
Kalmar land Airport has, together with its owner Kalmar Municipality, been working actively for many years to create the conditions to secure funding for the additional cost of aviation biofuel, with a long-term goal of having fossil-free aviation from Kalmar. As a first step towards fossil-free fuel locally, domestic flights between Kalmar and
The next step in the process was to establish the conditions for funding the aviation biofuel more broadly. During this process, both Kalmar Municipality and the airport, and many of the municipal companies, took the decision that all their own business travel on flights from Kalmar should be powered by biofuel. The procurement of aviation biofuel, equivalent to three years supply, for Kalmar Municipality took place this autumn.

The approximate 80 tonnes of biofuel required for flight services from Kalmar to
For us at BRA, access to biofuel is essential to successfully achieve fossil-free domestic air travel in the future. We need large-scale, continuous production nearby in order to have access to sustainably produced biofuel for reasonable pricing, explains Anna Soltorp, head of sustainability at BRA.
