HONOLULU (HawaiiNewsNow) - Hawaiian Airlines has agreed to purchase 50 million gallons of sustainable aviation fuel over five years.
The five-year pact is made with the biofuel company Gevo, which produces the fuel using corn.
Gevo expects the fuel to be created at a planned facility in the Midwest, with deliveries to begin to Hawaiian’s gateway cities in California in 2029.
Company officials say the agreement aligns with Hawaiian’s goal of net-zero carbon emissions by the year 2050.
