Heathrow CEO: Aviation should have priority access to sustainable biofuels
Heathrow Airport CEO John Holland-Kaye has urged policymakers to give the aviation sector priority access to the world's sustainable biofuel capacity, warning that a failure do so could undermine the carbon-intensive industry's transition to net zero.
"We shouldn't be competing with cars and trucks for biofuel," he said. "There are alternatives, such as electric, for trucks and cars but there is no alternative for SAFs for flight. One important policy measure is to protect global capacity of sustainable for aviation. That is the only way we can get to net zero by 2050."
