To ask the Scottish Government what action it is taking to promote the use of sustainable aviation fuel by the sector in Scotland.


The Scottish Government continues to explore options for incentivising the production and use of sustainable aviation fuel (SAF) as it develops its Aviation Strategy, recognising that transitioning to SAF is a crucial factor in the worldwide effort to decarbonise aviation.

In light of proposed UK Government action on SAF, officials are considering what support the Scottish Government could provide while recognising that significant levers remain reserved. In doing so, we are drawing on the responses to our consultation on the aviation strategy and the main findings from Scottish Enterprise’s recent SAF supply chain study. We will also involve stakeholders as appropriate.
