Project ALIGHT

ALIGHT is an EU-funded Smart Airport project, launched to develop a model of a sustainable airport of the future. The 17 project partners are working hard towards a vision of zero-emission aviation to be showcased at Copenhagen Airport, with fellow airports in Rome, Vilnius and Warsaw looking to replicate best practice solutions.

RSB will provide important guidance on the use of SAF in the project – ensuring that SAF that is compliant with RSB’s P&C is used – as well as expert advice and support throughout the project. As part of this project, RSB will also promote the role of airports in the growing SAF economy through the Sustainable Airports Platform.
