Bio aviation fuel
Increased use of bio-aviation fuel is an effective way of reducing the climate impact of aviation. At Kalmar Öland Airport, our goal since 2018 is to offer at least 5 % blends of bio-aviation fuel, something that will be gradually increased to 100% by 2030. The bio-aviation fuel market is so far a relatively immature market that is largely driven by those who dare to lead. Together, we - travelers and the airport - can be these forerunners and make the Kalmar region an important player in the transition of aviation.
How to fly greener
Already today, you and your company can reduce your climate impact directly during the flight by buying biofuel. Does it sound good? Here are some simple options for how to do it:
- Buy biofuel from the airlines that offer it. You buy the biofuel at the same time as you book your ticket. Information at each airline.
- Buy biofuel through Fly Green Fund. Detailed information further down the page.
- Buy biofuel with us at Kalmar Öland Airport. The biofuel comes from used cooking oil, and all biofuel purchased through us is refueled in aircraft that take off and land in Kalmar.
Contact us today and we will help you and your company fly greener! For a few extra hundred Swedish kroner, you can make your flight to Stockholm or Frankfurt carbon dioxide neutral.

Fly Green Fund
Fly Green Fund is a non-profit economic association that gives companies, individuals and public companies the opportunity to reduce the climate footprint of their air travel. The goal is to kick-start the market and the use of bio-aviation fuel in the Nordic region together. Anyone who wants to reduce the climate by buying biojet fuel, and at the same time contribute to a long-term more sustainable flight, can pay for their reduction with a card or Swish. As a company or public organization, the reduction can also be paid via invoice
Swisha a contribution to 123 131 4137 or use the climate calculator https://flygreenfund.se/klr
This is how companies do
Reduce climate by signing annual agreements. Based on how much the company flies, a sum is paid that reduces the travel's climate impact. The money goes to the purchase of bio aviation fuel.
When your company makes a payment to the Fly Green Fund, it contributes to a better environment - and to a stronger Kalmar region.
