MAG Becomes The First Aviation Organisation In Malaysia To Sign SAF Offtake Agreement With PETRONAS Dagangan Berhad

PULAU LANGKAWI, May 26 (Bernama) — Malaysia Aviation Group (MAG) has become the first aviation organisation in Malaysia to sign a sustainable aviation fuel (SAF) offtake agreement with PETRONAS Dagangan Berhad (PDB) as part of collaborative efforts to make the SAF production available in Malaysia at a commercial scale. The initiative will further accelerate industry-wide efforts to decarbonise the aviation industry as MAG takes tangible actions on its focus to achieve net zero emissions by 2050.
This first offtake agreement will see PDB supply more than 230,000 tonnes of SAF to MAG’s airlines with the first delivery expected from 2027 at Kuala Lumpur International Airport (KLIA). The SAF will be produced at PETRONAS’ co-processing plant in Melaka and will be supplied directly to KLIA for flights operated by national carrier Malaysia Airlines, and subsequently to sister airlines Firefly and MASwings.
