The agreement will have a "particular focus" on the carrier's bases at Dublin and London Stansted airports, with deliveries expected between 2025 and 2030.
Ryanair has set targets of 12.5 per cent SAF usage by 2030 and net-zero emissions by 2050.
Speaking at Ryanair’s Sustainability Day in Dublin, sustainability director, Thomas Fowler, said the agreement with Shell will help the carrier achieve some 20 per cent of its 2030 goal.
Shell Aviation president Jan Toschka, added: “This initial agreement demonstrates that both companies recognise that SAF is the key to unlock a net zero future for aviation… Leadership and bold actions are needed to accelerate the decarbonisation of flight, and today’s announcement is a great example of this.”
