Jet Aviation has signed the World Economic Forum’s (WEF) 2030 Ambition Statement, “Clean Skies for Tomorrow,” which aims for sustainable aviation fuel (SAF) to constitute 10 percent of the global fuel supply by 2030. By signing the statement, the FBO/MRO chain joins some 100 other stakeholders that support the transition to net–zero aviation. Using industry-standard figures, a 10 percent SAF blend equates to an 8 percent reduction in lifecycle carbon emissions compared with traditional jet-A.

“Collaboration is one of the best ways to bring innovative solutions to life and we are delighted to partner with WEF and other industry stakeholders to help increase the global supply of sustainable aviation fuel,” said Jet Aviation president David Paddock. “SAF has strong potential to reduce the industry’s carbon footprint, and increasing its availability helps bring us one step closer to making it the standard fuel for business aviation.”

Jet Aviation was the first supplier to offer SAF at Van Nuys Airport in 2019, and—in partnership with Neste and Zurich Airport—imported a limited supply of SAF for WEF 2020, marking the first time SAF was available for purchase in Switzerland. It also began to stock Neste MY Sustainable Aviation Fuel at its FBO in Amsterdam last year and teamed with SkyNRG to provide SAF via book-and-claim at its other FBOs.
