Sustainable Aviation Fuels have become a defining aspect of the global industry’s efforts towards achieving a more sustainable and aligned future with international environmental objectives. The purpose of this study is to conduct a qualitative impact analysis of SAF on aviation sustainability using several impact exploration instruments to understand the impact dialogue topics relevant to the theme of SAFs in the Turkish aviation sector. These methods include Word Clouds, Code Relationships Browser, Clustering Analysis, and Single Case Impact Model. Identifying and analyzing key topics and the relationship between them contribute to a better understanding of the chosen impact dialogue. This study highlights the environmental benefits of Sustainable Aviation Fuels (SAFs), but also identifies significant challenges in the economic, technological, and policy spheres that must be addressed strategically to achieve these goals. Therefore, the study recommends adopting these impact solutions to address the perceived feasibility issues and promote the implementation of Sustainable Aviation Fuels (SAFs).
