Gov't inks deal with New Zealand on sustainable aviation

The two countries will work on the Sustainable Aviation Fuel trial, amongst others.

Singapore and New Zealand have signed an agreement to collaborate on the development of a sustainable ecosystem.

The Memorandum of Arrangement (MOA) on Sustainable Aviation was signed by Singapore’s Ministry of Transport (MOT) and the Civil Aviation Authority of Singapore (CAAS) and the New Zealand Ministry of Transport and the New Zealand Ministry of Business, Innovation, and Employment.

The agreement is one of the first initiatives under the new Climate Change and Green Economy Pillar under the existing Singapore-New Zealand Enhanced Partnership.

Under the MOA, the two countries will collaborate on four key areas of sustainable aviation: policy and regulation; industry development; future infrastructure planning and provision; and workforce transformation.

The collaboration will also 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.
