Bangkok Airways Launches “Low Carbon Skies” Campaign

Our Bureau - : Jun 14, 2024 - : 3:30 pm

Bangkok Airways has unveiled its Low Carbon Skies initiative, a significant step towards sustainability through the reduction of carbon emissions from its aviation operations. The airline, in partnership with PTT Oil and Retail Business Public Company Limited (OR), is leading the way in the use of Sustainable Aviation Fuel (SAF) on the flight route between Samui and Bangkok. This move is also a part of a wider strategy to improve the sustainability of airports under its control.

“To reaffirm our status as the best regional airline globally and in Asia, as recognized by Skytrax for seven consecutive years, we are dedicated to continuously improving service quality to ensure that passengers receive exceptional travel experiences,” said Puttipong Prasarttong-Osoth, President of Bangkok Airways Public Company Limited.

He further added, “Moreover, Bangkok Airways aims to contribute to the proliferation of green aviation in Thailand and the region. Over the past years, we have implemented several measures to reduce CO2 emissions, such as efficient aviation fuel use, which in 2023 alone reduced CO2 emissions by 11,321 tonnes, or over 200 kilograms per flight. The use of SAF on pilot flights further reduces CO2 emissions by approximately 1,346 kilograms per flight.”

The Chief Executive Officer of PTT Oil and Retail Business Public Company Limited (OR), Mr. Disathat Panyarachun, highlighted the collaboration between OR and Bangkok Airways in the ‘Low Carbon Skies by Bangkok Airways’ initiative. He stated that the use of Sustainable Aviation Fuel aims to support the aviation industry’s transition towards a cleaner and more sustainable future.

In addition to airline sustainability improvements, the company also plans to enhance sustainability across its three airports (Samui, Sukhothai, and Trat) through the ‘Green Airport’ concept. Mr. Nijapat Piyapant, Deputy Chief Executive Officer for Airports at Bangkok Airways, stated that Samui Airport, the first to be certified with the carbon footprint label by the Thailand Greenhouse Gas Management Organization, serves as the model for this initiative.

These initiatives underline Bangkok Airways’ commitment to environmental stewardship and its role in fostering a sustainable aviation business in the region.
