Sustainable aviation fuel (SAF) provider Neste has signed an agreement to provide its SAF product at Jet Aviation’s FBO at Amsterdam Schiphol Airport. The deal will allow Jet Aviation to establish a continuous supply of the fully-certified, drop-in replacement fuel for the first time at one of its European locations.
The MY Neste SAF, which in its unblended form can result in an up to 80 percent lifecycle greenhouse gas emission reduction over conventional jet fuel, is produced entirely from renewable and sustainable waste and residue materials such as used cooking oil and animal fats. Jet Aviation is receiving a blend of 38 percent SAF, which will be placed in the airport's general fuel supply.
“As a clean, fully approved alternative to standard fossil-based jet fuel, we are delighted to secure a permanent supply of SAF at our first European FBO to help business aviation owners and operators contribute to sustainable aviation,” said João Martins, Jet Aviation’s v-p of regional FBO operations in Europe and general manager of the company’s Zurich facility.
Last year, Jet Aviation, in collaboration with Neste and Zurich Airport, imported a limited supply of SAF to fuel aircraft departing from the annual World Economic Forum, held in nearby Davos. This marked the first time SAF had been available for purchase in Switzerland.
