Korean Air has partnered with South Korean petroleum company SK Energy to introduce carbon-neutral jet fuel for domestic flights.

SK Energy will provide a month’s worth of the fuel for flights between Jeju and Cheongju.

The fuel has been made carbon-neutral by SK Energy through the purchase of carbon credits to offset its footprint.

The venture follows Korea Air’s decision to introduce new engines into its A220-300 aeroplanes that it claims reduce carbon emissions per seat by 25% compared to existing models of a similar capacity.
