Singapore’s Ministry of Transport (MOT) and the Civil Aviation Authority of Singapore (CAAS) today entered into an agreement on Sustainable Aviation with the New Zealand Ministry of Transport and New Zealand Ministry of Business, Innovation and Employment.
According to the agreement, both countries will join forces on how to advance sustainable aviation. They would mainly address policy and regulation; industry development; future infrastructure planning and provision; and workforce transformation. The collaboration will include coordinating the research and development, test-bedding and trial of Sustainable Aviation Fuel (SAF), facilitating the development of secure sustainable fuels, including SAF and hydrogen, supply chains in the Asia Pacific region and studying the scale, costs, technical and commercial viabilities of developing ‘green lanes’ between New Zealand and Singapore to encourage the gradual uptake of SAF-operated flights by consumers.
The Singapore aviation sector needs to prioritize sustainability in order to reclaim its position as an international air hub with global connectivity, after the effects of the COVID pandemic.
